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.
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
- Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
