Peanut Butter Toffee Cookies | The Best Combo

Please enjoy these Peanut Butter Toffee Cookies! They’re soft and chewy- just how cookies should be. Plus they’re super easy to make and nearly fail-proof.ย If you’re a peanut butter fan, then you will absolutely LOVE these! Add in a little toffee bit of action and you’ve got yourself a serious contender for the world’s greatest cookie. –> it doesn’t take much to impress me. Peanut butter + sugar means I’m smitten. My husband is the same way. This is why we never argue, I’m 96% sure. Anyways, you should get around to making these little buddies REAL soon because you will lurve them! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Main Ingredients Needed

  • Butter – this provides fat and flavor to these cookies. This ingredient also helps with texture, be sure to use softened butter, not melted.
  • Natural Chunky Peanut Butter – I used chunky because I love the extra crunch from the peanuts, but feel free to use smooth pb if desired.
  • Granulated + Brown Sugar – both are used to sweeten but brown sugar specifically aids in keeping these cookies soft.
  • Egg – for texture and structure.
  • Vanilla – for flavor.
  • Baking Soda – this is the leavening agent, aka the ingredient that makes things rise.
  • Flour – this fills out the cookies and prevents them from spreading too much.
  • Toffee Bits – these are mixed in by hand and provide amazing toffee flavor as well as bits of crunchiness.

Can I Use Processed Peanut Butter?

If you prefer to use processed peanut butter brands such as Jif or Skippy, feel free to do so! My only warning is that the texture might be a bit different than the original recipe. Try adding 1/4 cup less flour to get that signature cookie dough consistency.

    Lauren, these are so incredible looking. I mean, wow!! I am wishing these were in my kitchen now for a late night snack. They just look so good and I am a total peanut butter lover!

    I’m going to have to make these when the weather cools off. I had an identical weekend with a family reunion in the bay area. Traffic was bad and there were too many delicious homemade fruit pies. We passed by San Jose on our way back down to Southern California. The weather near San Francisco was a cool 70-75 degrees the whole weekend.

  3. Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious

    Yes, CA traffic is the WORST! It takes me an hour to commute to work and it’s only 12 miles away! Hope you had a great time at your reunion though, even in this heat wave!

    Now, these cookies. Yes and yes! Peanut butter and toffee = matchmade in heaven.

  4. Ellen @ The Baking Bluenoser

    These look so mouth-watering and delicious! I just want to whip up a batch right now and eat the whole batch ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Karen

    Thanks for a wonderful recipe. Eat your carbs now, darling…as long as you are nursing your baby will leach that fat right off of you. Enjoy!!!! Love your candor!

  6. Karly

    Oh, I absolutely hate family reunions. Hate them.

    But the cookies, man. They do make it a little more bearable. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Kristy @ Sweet Treats & More

    Oh these look perfect!! I’ve sworn off cookies and carbs for at least a day, we’ll see how i do, lol!! Seeing these might make it impossible!!

  8. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust

    Yikes, last week was pretty much hell in all of CA. It was 110 in Sac! And after 9pm, if my daughter is still up, there are tears…by me.

    These cookies would have made all that better! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Maegan @ The BakerMama

    Just made these and they are incredible! I can’t believe I’ve never combined toffee and peanut butter before and I pretty much live off peanut butter! The combination is out of this world! Great cookies!

  10. Megan {Country Cleaver}

    I’m a carb-oholic now, I fear the day that I get knocked up – because I feel an carb-ovention will be imminent. Sooo on that happy note. I need a cookie. Or five of these would suffice ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I just came across this recipe and it sounds delicious! The recipe states “hints of toffee and chocolate” but I do not see chocolate listed in the ingredients.

    I made these but the mix was very dry. Had to add another egg (I used 1 large one to begin with) and it didn’t spread very much at all.

    1. Lauren

      How do you measure your flour? Sometimes if you don’t fluff it up first, it can make the dough too dry {because it’s packed into the measuring cup}. Sorry they didn’t turn out!

  15. Megan

    Hi!

    The recipie says it yields 2 dozen but the directions say to fill up the two baking sheets with 8 dough balls each. That would only be 16 cookies right? Am I reading this all wrong?
    Thanks!!

  16. Shannon Donohue

    Your directions say to scoop 8 dough balls and you note that you used a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop. But the recipe says this makes 2 dozen cookies, not 8.

    I just made these last night, and they were such a hit. I used creamy peanut butter, because that is what I had. They were nice and soft and very flavorful. My husband doesn’t love chocolate so these were perfect. I might drizzle some chocolate on top of a few for me though. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making this again
