  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Make and bake cookies as directed on pouch for drop cookies. Cool completely, at least 30 minutes.
  • 2
    In food processor, process half of the cookies to coarse crumbs. Remove to medium bowl. Continue to process second half of remaining cookies to coarse crumbs; add to bowl. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans and the melted butter until well blended. In ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, press cookie crumb mixture firmly in bottom. Set aside.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, powdered sugar and 1/2 cup of the caramel topping with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended, scraping down side of bowl frequently. Beat in 2 cups of the whipped topping; stir in 1/2 cup of the toffee bits. Spread over cookie crust.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, beat dry pudding mixes and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Spread over cream cheese mixture. Drop remaining whipped topping by spoonfuls over pudding layer; spread carefully. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours until well chilled.
  • 5
    Before serving, transfer remaining 2 tablespoons caramel topping into small resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal, and cut one small corner off bag. Drizzle caramel on top of whipped topping layer. Sprinkle with remaining pecans, toffee bits and chocolate chips on top. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining dessert.

Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • Use a cookie scoop to make portioning cookie dough even faster and more consistent.
