Cake Mix Candy Bar Cookies

Cake Mix Candy Bar Cookies

This may be THE BEST COOKIE I have ever made.  The boys disagreed because their favorite Original Tolllhouse Chocolate Cookies exist.  And I say it’s a 3 way tie for me with the Kentucky Butter Cookies and the Texas Sheetcake Cookies from The Copper Whisk Cookbook.  Nonetheless these are stellar!

I used Heath toffee bits for these, but the beauty is that you can use whatever candy bar you want to! Think Butterfinger, Snickers, Reese’s, etc.  The small bites of crunch combined with the sweet is just a perfect combination.  

I am writing this and trying not to think about eating 4 more of these before dinner.  They are THAT good.  Let me know when you make them!


  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups Heath toffee bits (or whatever candy bar of your choosing(


Combine cake mix, eggs, and oil and mix well with mixer.  Stir in toffee bits by hand.  Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour.  After 1 hour preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use cookie scoop to drop dough onto baking sheet.  Bake 7-9 minutes.
