Toffee Bars


I saw these bad boys on Made Just Right and just had to give them a try. These Toffee Bars are really easy to make and only take 20 minutes to bake making them the perfect go-to dessert for when unexpected guests stop by or a delicious homemade treat to bring to a dinner party. 


Before we get to the recipe (below), here are a couple more treats for you to enjoy :)

Toffee Bars
Prep Time: 15 min
Bake Time: 20-25 min

Ingredients to make approximately 9 Bars:
(
1/3) cup nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans)

(1/2) cup (1 whole stick) butter
(
1/2) cup light brown sugar

(2) tsp. vanilla extract

(1/4) tsp. salt

(1) cup unbleached all-purpose flour
(
6) ounces dark or semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. 

Line a 8x8 baking pan or glass dish with foil. You want to make sure you have enough to come up on the sides forming a 'handle' in which you will pull the dessert out with later.

Spread nuts on a baking sheet. Bake 4 to 6 minutes, until lightly toasted. Cool, then chop and set aside.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and stir in sugar and vanilla, salt and flour. Make sure all ingredients are mixed together throughly.

Spread mixture evenly on the bottom of the pan.




Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.

Once golden brown, remove pan from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly across the shortbread. Put back in oven for 2 to 3 minutes to melt chocolate chips.

Remove from oven and using a spatula or back of a spoon; spread the chocolate evenly over the shortbread then sprinkle with toasted nuts.



Set your Toffee Bars aside to cool. 

Once they are completely cool, remove the dessert from the pan using the ends of the foil as handles to pull it out. Cut into squares or refrigerate for a cool treat.
