Toffee Bars


No words can describe how AMAZING these were!
Quick, easy, and stinkin' delicious!!!
 I'll leave you at that... 
I think you'll just have to find out for yourself!

Toffee Bars
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. light brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg yolk
2 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 c. chocolate chips/3 chocolate bars
1/2 c. chopped nuts

1. Heat oven to 350ºF.

2. In a large bowl, stir butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and egg yolk until well mixed. Stir in flour and salt. Press dough into 13x9 in. pan.

3. Bake 25-30 minutes or until very light brown. Immediately spread chocolate over hot crust. Let stand about 5 minutes or until soft {or if you're impatient like me- pop the pan into the oven after it's been turned off}; spread evenly. Sprinkle with nuts. Cool 30 minutes in pan on wire rack. 

Quick Tip: I would suggest cutting the bars right out of the oven...
Because when I took mine out of the fridge and tried to cut them it was NOT easy! 
{Don't worry- they're toffee bars... They're supposed to be hard!}

  2. Wow that does sound easy :) We'll have to try that sometime... I go to English country dancing balls and we bring "finger food" to them to snack on. These would be perfect! Sierra
