Chocolate Toffee Bars

Chocolate Toffee Bars

Today’s recipe is what happens when you have a major chocolate/toffee craving over the weekend.  You get Chocolate Toffee Bars on the blog!

It was a rainy, gloomy kind of weekend and I didn’t accomplish much of anything which is always a bit frustrating. I started a few projects but didn’t complete any of them and I now have a great big mess in my attempts to get organized.  I  discovered that a sure fire solution to rain, gloom, ineffectiveness, lack of organization and frustration is chocolate and toffee!  I just left the mess and headed to the kitchen.  It totally worked for me and I hope it works for you too.

This bar cookie is very shortbread like.  A nice crispy bottom layer with chocolate and toffee on top and a crumbly, crispy topping.

This recipe makes a smaller batch, using an 8 x 8 pan which is nice for my reduced sized family.  It does mean though that there is not as much to give away to the neighbors which they may not like.

Chocolate Toffee BarsYou mix up the  sugar, butter and flour until it is nice and crumbly and then reserve 1 cup of crumb mixture  to sprinkle on top.  Line your 8 x 8 pan with foil to make removal easier and make sure and spray it with cooking spray too.

A great tip for getting your crumb mixture nice and flat in the bottom of the pan is to use the bottom of a measuring cup.  Works great.

Step by Step

Sprinkle the crust with chocolate chips and toffee pieces ( make sure and use the ones that are covered in chocolate) and then sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture on top!  They are ready for the oven.

I am pretty sure these are amazing warm out of the oven.  Unfortunately for me as soon as I pulled them out of the oven I had to leave (time for church) so I didn’t get to try them warm.  They are delicious cooled as well but I will be making them again so I can try them warm for sure!

    Why not just say 2/3 cup of butter. That is much easier than measuring out 10 tablespoons?

    These look yummy. I just have to wait for baby number seven to be born (anytime in the next two weeks) to give it a try.

    Made these on Tuesday, so YUMMY! My husband said the recipe was a keeper and repeater OFTEN. I was thinking the filling could be changed out the base/crumble is so good. Thank you!

    These look delicious and I plan to make them this weekend! I wanted to leave a little feedback on your blog. There are now so many ads and SIGN UP or LIKE or SUBSCRIBE bars that it covers nearly my whole screen on my phone, and way too much of it on my computer. I love your blog, but it is becoming very hard to read! (And I’m already subscribed to everything, so can I get rid of the ads??)
