Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars Earlier this year I thought it would be a good idea to buy a bag of toffee bits larger than my head. I’m not quite sure why I thought I’d go through that many toffee bits, so now I’m on a hunt for toffee related recipes so I can start to use the bits up.

Fortunately, I came across this recipe. The bars are buttery, chewy, and delicious! I brought them into the office and they were gobbled up in no time. Be warned–they are rather rich, so cutting them in small-ish pieces is recommended.

Ingredients
2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (I omitted these)
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1-1/3 cups (8 oz. pkg.) toffee bits, divided

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
  2. Combine flour and brown sugar in large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. (I used my hands to cut in the butter.) Add egg; mix well. Stir in 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips and nuts; set aside 1-1/2 cups mixture.
  3. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over hot crust; set aside 1/4 cup toffee bits. Sprinkle remaining toffee bits over sweetened condensed milk. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture and remaining 1/2 cup chips over top.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Top with reserved toffee bits. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. About 48 bars.

    They look delicious. Like the idea of adding a nut like you suggested. Maybe pecans?
