Firefighter’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie

A great chocolate chip cookie recipe with chewy toffee surprises! I take these to the local firehouse and they don’t last the night!

Original recipe makes 5 dozen


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/8 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
6 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered English toffee, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, salt and baking soda.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Mix until smooth. Add the vanilla and the eggs and beat well. Gradually add the flour mixture until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped candy bars. Mix until combined.
  4. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes. Immediately remove the cookies from the sheet and let them cool on racks.
