Chocolate Toffee Caramel Cupcookies

A unique cookie twist.

Toffee Cookie Cupcookies

There are cupcakes…..and there are cupcookies.

These are cupcookies.

In this recipe, cupcookies are made with the cookie dough recipe on the Original Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip package.

But instead of mixing chocolate chips in the cookie dough, Heath Chocolate Toffee bits are added and each “cookie” is baked in a mini muffin pan.

When the cupcookies come out of the oven they’re shaped like a mini bowl.

So right out of the oven the middle of the cupcookies are filled with either chocolate chips, white morsels, or mini M&M’s.

Then if that’s not enough, the cupcookies are topped with caramel, frosting, and colored candy sprinkles.

Following are the ingredients used to fill the cupcookies in this recipe but you can definitely customize them to include your favorite ingredients.

You may even want to just fill them with ice cream….that works!

  1. Hi, these little ones are wonderful! I’m about to try the recipe out this week, but I have a question: you said you had used mini muffin tin, but your cupcookies seem to be regular size. The only tin I have at home is for baking mini muffins and I wonder if the recipe is going to work with a smaller size of a cookie… Could you help me out:)?

    • Hi Jo, I thought the same thing when I looked at the pictures….the cupcookies looked so large. But they were the mini size if you can believe it. I think the macro lens I use made them look a lot bigger than they were. Thank you for asking this in case others may have the same question. Have a great day!

    • Thanks a lot for such a quick response! I’m making them tomorrow, will report how they turned out:).

    • Sounds good!

  2. Unusual idea,these look very tasty!

  3. How yummy are these?! haha love this!

  4. Fantasticno izgledaju :)))

  5. Its hard to type while trying trying to wipe the drool off the keyboard. These look amazing. Something my 7 year old self would have created in a heartbeat 🙂 Amazing.

    • Hi Beth, thank you. These are fun for kids to make (and eat!)….just about any type of candy can by put in the middle of these cupcookies.

  6. What a cute idea!! These are adorable. I’d love to have a couple of these right now =) Your photos are beautiful, too.
