Heath Bar Cookies

Heath Bar Cookies that are soft inside and crunchy on the outside.  Absolutely perfect.  Alohamora
This cookie is delicious!  It has Heath bits aka chocolate covered toffee bits, it has a soft middle with a crunchy edge, and the chocolate fans (aka myself and most normal people) as well as the non-chocolate fans (aka my husband and a few others I know) love these cookies.  Easy to make, everyone loves them, and they have the perfect balance of crunch and softness as well as sweet and salty. 

LOVE these cookies!.

These Heath Bar Cookies are crowd pleasers.  The wild and crazy ones will like the unique flavor, but the more low-key individuals will like that it doesn't stray too far from classic chocolate chip.

I use a mixture of milk chocolate chips as well as a bag of Heath Bits.  You can smash, crush, or use a food processor to make bits from the real candy bar, but these bags are cheap and so easy to use.  I have found Walmart and Target actually have the best price for these bags (around $2.30).

As far as cookies go these bad boys are relatively fast.  There is no need to refrigerate the dough (can I tell you how much I loathe doing it and rarely if ever do do it), and everything whips together really fast in a stand mixer.  Plus, this dough is oh so tasty.  This recipe makes anywhere between 3-4 dozen, but that is all dependent on how much dough you snack on.  I literally eat so much dough that I can't eat any cookies until at least a couple hours later.  Anyone else do that?    

I just made cookies yesterday, but these cookies are again calling my name.  They are so good and we gobble them up so fast!

Oh, and let me apologize for being a horrible librarian.  I've had this recipe for awhile and I cannot, for the life of me, remember where I got the recipe from.  I apologize if it was from you.  Just email me/comment and I will fix that.

Heath Bar Cookies
Alohamora: Open a Book

Recipe from: ??? Bad librarian (slapping my hand as I type)
Active Time: 30 minutes
Inactive Time: 20-30 minutes
Makes: 3-4 dozen medium size cookies 


1 c. butter (softened aka room temperature)
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp hot water
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 1/3 c. Heath bits or 1- 8oz Heath Bits bag
1 c. milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325. 
  2. Cream together the butter and both sugars. Cream until very light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes on low.
  3. Add the eggs one at time, and then the vanilla. Scrape the bowl to make sure everything is incorporated well. .
  4. Add 2 cups of flour. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water. Add the baking soda mixture, the last cup of flour, salt, and cream of tartar to the bowl.
  5. The dough may feel tough but trust the recipe and do 2 cups flour, baking soda mixture, then 1 more cup. Add no more or no less flour (unless you are at high altitude and then add about 1/3 cup of extra flour.  
  6. Add the Heath Bars and mix until just combined.Using a medium sized scooper, add 12-15 to a pain lined with baking mats or parchment paper.  I'm a big fan of the baking mats. 
  7. Bake in a preheated 335 degree oven for 8-10 minutes depending on how hot your oven cooks. I personally cook for 9 minutes and I have a relatively fast/hot oven.
  8. Enjoy the cookies hot from the oven or cool.  Though, I do suggest milk.  
  9. Store cookies in an airtight container.  

 As always let me know if you have any questions/comments, or concerns.
