Grandma's Toffee Squares

25 mins
24 cookies
  • 1 cup butter, softened (yes, that's 2 sticks)
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. Using a hand mixer, cream butter.
  2. Add sugar.
  3. Add in egg yolk and salt and combine.
  4. Using a spoon, stir in flour until combined. If it seems too dry, continue to combine and it will thicken up to a dough.
  5. Spread batter into greased 10x15x1 pan or a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until top is lightly golden brown.
  7. Immediately out of the oven, pour chocolate chips evenly over the top of the cookie.
  8. Using a spatula, spread chocolate chips around until all the chocolate is melted and evenly coating the top of the cookie.
  9. Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top and let cool.
  10. Once cooled, cut into squares, serve and enjoy!


My Grandma is the queen of Christmas cookies. Every year, she gives out a holiday box with all of her signature cookies. And every year, my Dad and I would fight over these toffee squares. She started making him his own box just filled with these cookies and I would always steal one every time I walked past.

Now that I don't live close to home and am unable to acquire said Christmas cookies from Grandma herself, I find joy in being able to bake them for my family and with my daughter. And the best part? I don't have to share.

These cookies are ridiculously simple and have the perfect chocolate to cookie ratio with a little added crunch.

I promise you, these cookies won't be lasting long.
