These toffee bars stemmed from an inspiration of a lonely bag of toffee bits in the pantry that I wasn’t sure what to do with. I am sure I bought them with great intentions and then I forgot and moved onto something else. I am not a big toffee fan, so I had to do some research on what I could make that would stand out from your average toffee recipe. I think I succeeded as these didn’t last too long around here. I also got many comments, that it was like eating a candy bar but smaller and better. This recipe is adapted from myrecipemagic.com
3/4 C butter softened, plus 2 TB, 3/4 C light brown sugar, 1 1/2 C flour, 10oz. can of sweetened condensed milk, 1 C milk chocolate chips and 1 C heath toffee bits.
Cream together 3/4 C butter, brown sugar and flour until the mixture sticks together. Press into an 8×8 pan. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes until light golden brown. Cool.
Heat sweetened condensed milk and butter in a saucepan stirring constantly for roughly 8 minutes until thickened ( if not it will burn quickly). Spread over the cooled base. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes until golden. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over the top. Bake another 2 minutes longer. Spread chocolate chips until smooth. Sprinkle toffee bits on top pressing lightly down into the chocolate. Cool completely. I found that if they were chilled, they cut nice and even and tasted great!
