Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

My sister and I made these around Thanksgiving and they were SO good!! They were gooey and sweet and had a bit of a crunch to them. They were also very easy to make. They would be great to bring to a party, although I’m not sure you’ll want to share!

Check out the link to Mel's Kitchen Cafe underneath the title of the recipe to see her pictures. They look much more delicious than mine!

Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

(From Mel’s Kitchen Cafe)

2 1/3 cups flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup butter, softened

2 eggs, slightly beaten

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional, we didn’t use any)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 package toffee bits, divided

Preheat an oven to 350F and line a 9×13″ baking pan with foil. Set aside

In a bowl, combine flour, salt, and brown sugar. Cut in the butter so that you get a crumbly texture. Add in the eggs and mix well. Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips and, if using, all of the nuts.

Take 1 1/2 cups of the dough and set it aside. Press the remaining dough into the bottom of the prepared pan and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and pour the can of condensed milk over the crust. Top with all but 1/4 of the toffee bits and sprinkle bits of the remaining dough over the top. Pour the rest of the chocolate chips evenly over everything. Bake for another 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining toffee bits over the top. Let cool before serving.
