This recipe should come with a warning label: Eating these may be dangerous for your hips!
If you have been reading my blog for a while you know that I love the combination of chocolate and toffee.
Today’s recipe is from The Sister’s Cafe, a fun food blog that 5 sisters share. What a lucky family to have so many amazing cooks and besides that their sister in law Melanie is one of my favorite food bloggers over at My Kitchen Cafe. Wish I could get invited to some of their family dinners!!
I made these a few weeks ago, took a bite and knew immediately that I had to get them OUT OF MY HOUSE!!
They were so good I knew if I didn’t share them with someone I would end up eating the whole pan myself and that would NOT be a good thing!!
The combination of the chocolate chips, toffee bits and the sweetened condensed milk which turns into caramel as it bakes is amazing!!! I of course did not wait for them to cool. So warm and gooey!!!
Fortunately there was a work party for the musical going on at the high school so I took them over there where they very quickly disappeared!
Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars
2 1/3 C flour
2/3 C brown sugar
3/4 C butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
1 C chopped nuts – could use pecans, walnuts or macadamias but I left them out
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
10 oz. Skor toffee bits
Stir together flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and mix well. Stir in 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips and all of nuts. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of this mixture and press remaining into a greased 9×13 inch pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350. Pour milk over hot crust and top with 1 1/2 cups toffee bits. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over top plus remaining chips. Bake 25-30 more minutes. Top with remaining toffee bits.
