Simple Toffee Cookies

Sharing is caring!

If you are looking for a really simple salted toffee cookies recipe, I have one for you today. These are so good – fluffy and soft with bits of toffee in them. But that is not all, the best thing is that this cookie is made with just four ingredients!

Yes, it is true. So no need to get a bunch of baking ingredients together, these will be ready to bake in no time.

Soft Toffee Cookies


On Sunday evenings, I like to bake a little something to top off the weekend.  It was kinda late to start a cookie from scratch so I went to one of my quick cookie recipes – cookies from a boxed cake mix. I love toffee this time of year and I had a bag of those toffee bits in my cupboard so I knew I could whip up a batch of tasty cookies pretty quickly.

We are all about making the most of the time here on Organized Island which is why we only share easy recipes.

All you need are these simple ingredients:

  • White or Vanilla Cake Mix – Either one works great for this recipe and you can use yellow cake or even chocolate cake mix if that is all you have.
  • Butter – I always recommend using real butter but you can use margarine too.
  • Egg – Just one egg is all you need, see full recipe below
  • Toffee Chips – I love this brand, but any brand works.
