How to make Heath Bar Cookies
Preheat your oven to 350℉ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add the butter and sugars to the bowl of a stand mixer (or large bowl and electric mixer), and cream the ingredients for 3-4 minutes at high speed until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
- Add the egg and vanilla extract to the butter mixture and mix at medium speed until fully combined.
- Add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda, to a small bowl, and whisk to combine the dry ingredients, then add it to the mixture and mix just enough to combine.
- Add the heath bar pieces to the cookie dough.
- Then fold them into the cookie dough.
- Scoop out the dough (about 2 tablespoons per cookie) and place it on the prepared parchment-lined cookie sheet. Repeat the process until all the cookie dough has been used.
If you use a cookie scoop the size is between #30 and #40, so either of those will work. I’ve never tried it but a friend made cookie bars using this dough and said they came out great.
- Place the cookie sheets on the middle shelf of the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
- Remove the toffee cookies from the oven and allow them to cool on the pan for 2-3 minutes before moving the baked cookies to a cooling rack.
This is a soft cookie, the outer edges will get a little crisp, but the rest of the Heath bar cookie will be moist, soft, and chewy, with the toffee bits adding a crunchy texture.
I have to admit I’m a bit of a cookie monster and these delicious Heath bar cookies didn’t last very long at my house. I hope your family loves them as much as I do.
Store the heath bar cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. These cookies also freeze well. Freeze them on a cookie sheet then place the frozen cookies in a ziplock bag.
Heath bar cookies are made of normal cookie ingredients; all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla extract, eggs, and of course heath bar bits.

Yes, you can use store-bought Heath bars or Skor bars, if you can’t find bits. Simply crush or chop them into small pieces to incorporate into the cookie dough.
