This is a copy cat recipe of Crumbl’s Sea Salt Toffee Cookies which are a chewy original cookie base loaded with milk chocolate chips and buttery toffee bits topped off with a sprinkle of Sea Salt.
Crumbl Copy Cat Recipe
This is one of many copy cat recipes in my repertoire. 😉 I’ve become a bit obsessed lately with trying to recreate the giant massive cookies sold at Crumbl so if you are a Crumbl fan, your pocketbook just took a big ‘ol sigh of relief.
We’ve got everything from the Classic Sugar and Chocolate Chip cookie to the Chocolate Oreo or Raspberry Cheesecake cookie. If you’d like to peruse through and see what I’ve already posted, just check out my Crumbl Cookies Recipe Round up.
Today, however, we are making the Sea Salt Toffee which has become a favorite around my house. The salty with the sweet just hits the spot. Pair it with a tall glass of ice cold milk and you’ve got yourself a seriously happy situation. Let’s make them!
Below are the ingredients you’ll need as well as any helpful info I can think of to make your life a bit easier.
- Butter- I always use salted butter, quickly softened in the microwave when I make cookies!
- Granulated Sugar
- Brown Sugar- I use light brown sugar.
- Vanilla Extract- We will use 1 1/2 tablespoons- nope, not a typo!
- All Purpose Flour
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder
- Milk Chocolate Chips- If you want a true copycat of the original you’ll want to look for the Guittard brand of milk chocolate chips. They are massive and what Crumbl uses in their cookies.
- Heath Bars- We will break 3 bars into small bite sized pieces to mix into the cookie dough before baking.
- Coarse Sea Salt
How to make Sea Salt Toffee Cookies
These cookies will bake at 375° to help us get the crispy, golden brown exterior while having a nice soft and gooey center. The cookie dough comes together by creaming the butters and sugars together, then adding in the eggs and vanilla before mixing in the dry ingredients. Lastly the chocolate chips and heath bar chunks are added.
I use my stand mixer to mix together the cookie dough easily- I highly recommend using a mixer to make the cookies!
Use 1/2 cup of dough in each cookie- roll the cookie dough into balls and then flatten them slightly before putting them into the oven. Bake 6 cookies on each pan- this will make 12 giant cookies.
The cookies will puff up, spread and turn golden brown in the oven before taking them out. This should take about 11-13 minutes in a 375° oven.
Sprinkle them with sea salt right after you pull them out of the oven and then allow them to cool on the pan for 10 minutes before serving.
Serve warm but are also fantastic at room temperature.
How to Store your cookies
Store your cookies at room temperature in an air tight container for up to 3 days. If you’d like them to last longer, you can store in the fridge for 1 week or you can freeze for up to 3 months! Just set the cookies out at room temperature for about 30 minutes and they will taste like they were baked the same day!

You are so welcome, I’m glad you enjoy them. Thanks for the comment.
These cookies are HUGE. I had to chill them overnight due to oven space. Should I let them come to room temperature before baking? And should I press them a bit?
I will never make normal chocolate chip cookies again. Love love love!
