How to Make These Tasty Pumpkin Toffee Cookies

Start with a yellow cake mix into a large mixing bowl.

Add a fabulous can of pumpkin.

Give it a nice mix, like so.

I kinda LOVE these mini chips, however any chocolate chips will do the trick.

Add a good 2 cups to the bowl.

Stop and take a photo of this pile of deliciousness 🙂

I added about 1 cup of toffee chips.


Break out the Rolo’s. Twenty to be exact 🙂

Give em’ a nice chop.

Add them to your bowl.


One more good mix!

Time for the baking sheet.

Now, these won’t spread too much, so no need to leave too much space in between each cookie.

Soft, cake-like and chocolatey perfect. Enjoy!

  1. I feel like this is probably a dumb question but do we prepare the cake mix as directed with eggs/oil/etc. or just using the flour-y mix plus pumpkin to get our consistency?

  2. I was pretty disappointed with there. I’m not sure cake mix is really the best medium for these cookies…maybe they would be better suited as mini cupcakes? It was very difficult to tell when they were done, because the appearance looks so raw. As others mentioned, the rolos seep out and burn at the edges. A great concept, but cake mix is definitely not the right vehicle here. For starters, cake mix has far more leavening than cookies need, a VERY different ratio of sugar to flour, and uses all white sugar (where most cookies use a mix of white and brown to achieve optimal texture). Might make good cupcakes, but not cookies.

    This may be a silly question, but when you have your recipes where you use a box cake, do you follow the directions on the box prior to mixing with your recipe? Sometimes I do and it turns how perfect. But other times it looks nothing like your ending result when I do! Thanks!

    Help! I am making these right now and they’re just too soft. I even baked them much longer than the suggested time limit. I want to give out some cookie platters (locally) and mail some (one in state and one out of state), and I don’t know if the pumpkin cookies I made will hold up on the mailing journey.

    I have been baking from this website for months now, but this is my first comment. These cookies were soo easy to make an delicious. I made them for work on Thanksgiving and my co-workers LOVED them. They keep asking me to make more! Thanks for the great recipes 🙂

    OH MY GOODNESS! Made these last night! I could not believe how incredibly yummy these were. Especially with such minimal amount of ingredients. The worst part was unwrapping the rolos! I brought them to a get together and the kids went nuts. I have to admit half the kids were gaga over them and the other half were just so-so. My husband and I couldn’t stop eating them.

    To respond to the person who said the rolos came oozing out after baking, that happened on a couple of the cookies. I just cut off the hard, caramel-y part and it was great.

    My one recommendation is that I would make them on the smaller side next time. They are so gooey and hard to pick up when bigger. Maybe it was my fault and I didn’t cook them long enough, but that would be the only change I would make – making them smaller.

    Incredible recipe and definitely one of your best!

    I made these tonight..delicious! The parchment paper on cookie sheets is definitely recommended, as some of the rolo caramel & toffee will seep out of the cookie when baking and stick to the paper. I also used a mini scoop and they turned out the perfect size. Lastly, my rubber stapula kind of stuck when I tried to get the cookies off the sheet, so I switched to a fork and it worked much better.

    Could you also use whit cake mix? Any reason you specified yellow? I have a box of whit on-hand I am looking to find a recipe for.

  9. Andrea

    I am in the middle of baking these right now. I couldn’t find plain toffee chips, so I just chopped up some Heath bars (but who doesn’t love a little extra chocolate!?) I had the same problem as Kristie and the Rolos kind of exploded and burnt around the edges of the cookie. Definitely not the pretties cookies, but they do taste good. I will try to clean up the edges once they’ve cooled off!

  10. Kristie

    So..I made these and the Rolo’s melted out of the cookie. They look horrible. (taste good though) what did I do wrong?

    1. Trish Barton

      I had the same problem. They taste delicious, but definitely don’t look like the cookies pictured. I’m going to try to turn down the temperature on my oven 25 degrees and let them sit out on the pan they cooked in and see if that helps.

  11. Kasey

    These are fabulous and so easy to make! I just made them yesterday and I can’t belive how easy they are! And they look beautiful too! Thank you for this awesome recipe 🙂

  12. Jessica Sieber

    Making them right now! The assembly is so easy and they smell delish! My 4year old son had an easy time with this one!! Thanks love this Blog!,

  13. Anna

    I JUST made the double pumpkin kissed chocolate chunk cookies this past weekend and absolutely LOVE them!! NOW I HAVE to make these!! I love all your recipes and can’t wait to surprise people with them!!

  14. Larissa

    Wow – these look yummy! I made some chocolate chip cookies over the weekend and the Halloween candy bowl sitting on the counter called me over. I put mini Three Musketeers in a few cookies, mini Snickers in a few, chopped fun size MilkyWay’s and put half into a few, and put a random Hershey’s kiss in one. My son would have inhaled them…I had to ration him! LOL I tried a couple (cut in half) both warm and the next day. Yum!! If I were making these pumpkin toffee rolo chippers, I’d use a little less of the chips and toffee pieces so there is more cookie. I’m sure they’ll be good either way! I also successfully made the pumpkin vanilla cinnamon roll sheet cake twice – once with a homemade cake mix and once with the store bought mix. Great both ways!

  15. MissKris

    I’m definitely going to make these, but I was thinking of adding pumpkin pie spice to the mix. How much do you think? I don’t want to overdo it.

  16. OH goodness! You had me at “Pumpkin”! ;D Lol! Mm, but throw in those Rolo’s and I’m completely and utterly HOOKED!!!

    I was wondering if you had any tips on how this might work with a gluten-free cake mix (Betty Crocker)? My dad is gluten-intolerant and so sometimes I like to use the GF cake mixes when convenient so he can have some treats too. 😉

    Can’t wait to give this one a try! Your blog is one of my absolute favorites!!! I’m always looking forward to your next recipe! 😀 HeHe!

  17. Two of my fave candies are Rolos and Heath Bars! Combined with choc chips and pumpkin…oh, I’d love to be your dishwasher in exchange for your leftovers. Gorgeous pics, as usual, too Jenny!

    And happy Anniversary!! Loved your IG feed from the weekend!
