Pumpkin Toffee Chip and Rolo Chunk Cookies

Tags: , , ,

There is nothing quite like the sweet smell of pumpkin and chocolate baking away in the oven! These soft, one bowl simple cookies will have the family jumping for joy 🙂

Take a look and enjoy!!

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!


Pumpkin Toffee Chip and Rolo Chunk Cookies

1 Box Yellow Cake Mix

One 15 ounce can Pumpkin (I used Libby’s)

2 cups mini chocolate chips

1 cup toffee chips

1 1/2 cups chopped Rolo’s

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silpat liner.

2. Place cake mix and pumpkin into a large bowl, mix to combine. Stir in chocolate chips, toffee chips and Rolo’s, mixing until combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake for 15-17 minutes until cooked through. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Serve room temperature or chilled.

Makes 4-5 dozen cookies


Hope you enjoy! Come back soon 🙂

    Loved easy and I thought the best part was having the rolos fall around the edges because when I pulled the, from the Silpat it was chocolaty goodness! Yumm

    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.

    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.

    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’m all about saving time during this busy season, so I love any recipe that takes advantage of cake mix and other shortcuts. This one is quick and simple, with yellow cake mix, chocolate chips, toffee chips and pieces of Rollo candy. Mix it all up, bake for about 15 minutes, and you’ve got mounds of chunky, chocolatey goodness that blur the line between cookie and candy. (Did I say I wasn’t hungry? I think I just changed my mind!) (Picky Palate) […]

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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?
