My Famous Daim Bar Cookies

I have to say I'm a little bit reluctant posting this recipe, because it's the one thing that people ask me to bring to parties, BBQs and school events and I understand why.  I used to think proper American chocolate chip cookies were the best cookies ever until one day I decided to smash up some Daim bars and use them instead.  The toffee bit melts in the oven then hardens up again when they cool, the chocolate melts into the cookie as well and the resulting cookie is chewy, moist and truly heavenly.  Everyone who tries these agrees they are the best cookie ever. The dough is very soft, don't worry about that, just plop them onto a sheet and observe the magic! Give them a go, you will not be disappointed!


  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 3 bags mini Daim bars, smashed up
Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F.

Beat the sugars and the butter with a mixer until fluffy and soft.  Add in eggs, vanilla, baking soda and cream of tartar until well combined.

Add in the flour and beat until mixed.  Stir in the smashed up Daim bars.

Drop one inch balls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes until golden brown around the edges.  Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before removing from tray.  Allow to cool completely before serving as the caramel can burn.  

Makes about 60 cookies.
