Easy Loaded Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookie Brittle Recipe

What is cookie brittle? It’s basically a made from scratch cookie dough that’s pressed onto a pan and baked in a solid piece. After baking, you break the cookie brittle into pieces. While I’ve never been known to turn away from any cookie, this cookie brittle is a nice change. I also love that it’s much like peanut brittle in the sense you can break it into any size you want. Brittle is meant to be random. So although I give a yield for this recipe, keep in mind it’s really up to you. How to make Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle:

  • Flour – All purpose flour sifted with baking soda and salt. Baking soda is the only leavening in this cookie brittle. No eggs needed.
  • Butter – Salted or unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly.
  • Sugar – Granulated sugar and light brown sugar.
  • Flavoring – Vanilla extract.
  • Mix-ins – Mini semi sweet chocolate chips, pecans, sweetened flaked coconut and milk chocolate covered toffee bits.

  1. Most of mine did not stick together. Only ended with a few pieces. What did I do wrong?
    I followed the recipe.

    I love your recipes and never had an issue before.

    1. Do you mean that it crumbled? That sounds as if it was dry. Make sure you’re measuring the dry ingredients accurately. Always spoon the flour and level and never scoop the cup into the flour. It becomes compacted and will most certainly make baked goods dry.

  2. I wonder if they could be made with peanut butter without coconut and another Flavor of bits not chocolate? I like the idea of brittle. Just get tired of chocolate chips in so many recipes.

  3. Where would I find milk chocolate covered toffee bits? Have searched the internet with no luck! Thanks for the help!

    1. Chocolate covered toffee bits are readily available on the baking aisle of most grocery stores including Walmart and Target. Alternately, crush Heath candy bars.
