Chocolate Brickle Sensations

Do you have those go to recipes that you know will ALWAYS please everyone?  I have quite a few up my sleeve, but I love these little cookies for their toffee crunch and chocolaty goodness.  Plus you literally toss all the ingredients together and portion them out.  How simple is that?

When company is coming unexpectedly, or I’m looking for just one more sweet treat that I know will be a hit, I pull out my recipe for Chocolate Brickle Sensations.

I’d love to claim this recipe as mine, but some 20 years ago I saw it in our local paper – a recipe sent in by a Pat Bollwerk.  I tore it out of the paper and have had it filed ever since, creating this recipe over and over again.

If you’re having company this weekend, asked to bring a dish to someone’s home, or even an extra nosh for Mother’s Day next weekend, I suggest making these.  With four dozen cookies from one recipe, these are guaranteed to disappear in one day!  Really!!!  For this recipe read more………

Chocolate Brickle Sensations


1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 (4-serving-size) package instant French vanilla pudding mix
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 (12-ounce) package mini chocolate chips
10-ounce package brickle (English toffee) bits


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients together.  Stir by hand until well mixed.
  3. Using a small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop cookie dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until browned.

If you make these, I’d be curious to know how long they lasted.  GUARANTEED A WINNER!

  1. The name alone is a pleaser. Ooh, I bet these are fabulous with a glass of ice-cold milk. 😉

  2. Yup , the name itself sounds scrumptious 😀 I’ll drop by later , so save a dozen or 2 for me !

  3. So yummy sounding Vick, these have my name written all over them. You probably didn’t know that my middle name is Brickle 🙂 not really but as much as I love those delicious toffee bits, it might as well be.

  9. Incredible looking cookies…they sound amazing!

  10. I love any cookie recipe that doesn’t require softened butter, because when I am in the mood to bake, I want to do it RIGHT THEN, and not wait on my butter. I’ll be making these to take to my friend’s Mother’s Day Dinner. YUM

  11. Chocolate and toffee…a sensational combo!
