Toffee Brownie Bark

Now that our nest is empty I am not a big Costco shopper.  In fact, Jim is usually the one who makes our Costco runs to stock up on Green Smoothie ingredients and toilet paper once or twice a month. Well, over the holidays I needed to make a trip to Costco and I discovered something pretty amazing.  It was something called Brownie Brittle  Yea, pretty amazing stuff!

I put it out at a holiday party in a bowl – it doesn’t look like anything special but let me tell you once people started eating it they couldn’t stop.  If you like the edges of brownies, you know the crispy stuffy, you are going to LOVE this.  I promise.

So of course I had to see if I could figure out how to make it myself.  It’s just this thing I do.  Thanks to Cookie Madness I didn’t have to work too hard! I  adapted my version from her recipe.  She calls it Bark instead of Brittle. I tweeked her recipe just a bit and just added a coating of toffee bits to turn it into Toffee Brownie Bark.  Already thinking up some other fun combinations.

The biggest trick is to get the batter spread as thin as you possibly can in your pan.  I used my  13 x 18 cookie sheet and lined it with a silphat.  You can also use parchment paper. I then sprinkled it with toffee bits for extra goodness.

After baking for 20 minutes you remove it and cut it with a pizza cutter into “shard” shaped pieces. Then put it back in the oven to bake a bit longer.

Toffee Brownie BarkMy husband said it was great but didn’t taste exactly like what I had bought at Costco but really, who can remember exactly how something tasted that you ate 5 months ago.  I just remember it being delicious and  I thought my version was pretty darn good and so did the neighbor kids when I took a bowl out to the basketball game going on in the cul de sac.  There were no complaints from them!  Maybe I’ll have to buy another bag from Costco and do a taste test.

    Oh my! This looks delicious! My hubby will love these. He’s the one that always wants the crunchy edge of the brownies. :) Thanks for sharing!

    Do you know how many bags of Brownie Brittle we bought from Costcos? I lost count. We gave all our friends a bag with their other treats to take home. Can’t wait to try this recipe.

    mmm, mmm good. Brownies and toffee…simply devine. I will have to put this on the short list of treats to try. I like the suggestion of the sillpat under it.

        Completely delicious!!! I made a batch yesterday and it was scarfed by my kids and coworkers. Love the texture and the flavor. I realized later that I inadvertently left the dry milk out, and I don’t think it made a difference. Or at least, the results were what I expected and I don’t feel like the milk would have changed it substantially. These are going in the favorites pile, along with the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. I make those often and they are a hit every time.

          I am so glad you liked them. I always hold your opinion in high regard!! As I put the powdered milk in I thought to myself – I probably don’t need this! Good to know I don’t.
          Thanks Heidi!!

    We happened to try that Brownie Brittle from Costco as well! Dee-lish, I must say! But after looking at the ingredients -I am pretty sure sugar is # w1 – we renamed it “Sugar Brittle” and that first bag we bought was also our last! It was like crack- not that I know what crack is, but I can just imagine, because it was sooooo addicting…Sugar will do that to you! I am anxious to try your version because 2/3 cup of sugar is certainly reasonable! Thanks for experimenting and coming up with a healthier version!

      jennifer, Guess I should add a disclaimer to the post that I am not response for any potential weight gain from making this recipe. It is one of those that once you start eating it, it’s hard to stop!!

    We don’t have Costco, so I’m not familiar with the brittle product, but I’ll take your word that it’s good. I’ll also take your word that your version is good. Because, really, how could it not be?! Chocolate, toffee, brownies. Yum! Thank you for sharing with See Ya in the Gumbo this week.

    Thank you for sharing your yummy toffee brownie bark at A Crafty Soiree! It looks so good, I love toffee anything. I’ve featured your project in the week’s party post. It will be up at midnight EST tonight and I hope you’ll come by to see it and share more of your projects.

    I wanted to thank you for this great recipe! I made several changes for a healthier version that my family can have, and it still tasted fabulous! Most of the time, we try and eat refined sugar free and dairy free (and often gluten free). This looked so good to me that I had to try it! I used coconut sugar instead of sugar, melted coconut oil instead of canola oil, whole wheat pastry flour (and I bet it would still work with a gluten free flour), and chopped up half of a healthy chocolate bar in place of chocolate chips. I left out the toffee and powdered milk. Even with all of those changes, we loved it!! It is such a nice change from your typical cookies or cakes…and very addicting! :) Thank you so much!!
