  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour spoon and leveled
  • 1 (3.4 oz) box instant pudding mix I’d suggest vanilla or butterscotch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cups toffee bits
  • 3/4 cups butterscotch chips
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips use semi-sweet, dark, and/or milk chocolate chips
  • Maldon sea salt optional for topping


  • Melt butter in a sauté pan over medium heat.
  • Once melted, cook, whisking very regularly, until brown bits start to form and the butter is foaming, about 1-5 minutes.
  • Carefully pour into a large bowl and let cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
  • Add in brown sugar and sugar and beat until combined.
  • Scrape down the sides, then beat in eggs and vanilla.
  • Add in flour, instant pudding, salt, baking powder, and baking soda, and beat again, until incorporated.
  • Beat in toffee bits, butterscotch chips, and chocolate chips.
  • Line 4 baking sheets with silicone baking mats.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to scoop out 32 dough balls — place 8 onto each prepared baking sheet.
  • Optional - chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. This helps prevent the dough from spreading.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F then bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and optional - sprinkle with maldon sea salt.
  • Cool slightly before transferring to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
