Toffee Chocolate Bars

I came up with these little yummy treats the other day when I was making supper and just wanted a quick yummy dessert. These thin little bars are just perfect, chocolate, toffee, and a sweet shortbread bottom. Plus there is only 4 ingredients and it only takes 15 minutes to bake. Does it get better than that?

What you need:

  • 1/3 c + 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. + 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • chocolate chips

In a saucepan, melt together 1/3 c. butter and 1/3 c. brown sugar.

Let it boil together for about a minute after it has melted.

In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, and remaining butter and brown sugar. It helps if you melt the butter.

Press the flour mixture into the pan. You don't need to grease the pan.

Pour the toffee mixture on top. Bake at 325F for 15 minutes.

Remove and add a handful of chocolate chips to the top. I add about 1/2 c. You can add more or less depending on your tastes.

Give the chocolate chips a minute or 2 to melt and then spread them over the bars. Enjoy!

Is this made in a 9 x 13 pan? If it is written in the directions, I didn’t see it. I was thinking of doubling it. I have to take something to our home group each week, but I need to leave some for my family.

My aunt made something like this but she put Saltine crackers on the bottom and the toffee and chocolate was drizzled or melted on top. It was sooooo good. Its a great way to use up Saltine crackers before they go stale. The sweet/salty combo is great.

Hmm, I’m going to have to try this with coconut oil and coconut flour! (Can’t eat wheat or dairy.) Looks yummy! Thanks!

Hello Merissa πŸ˜‰ I am wondering is the toffee going to be hard when its done baking or does it need to set for a while? I use my woodstove to cook and bake right now while its winter time. So i wi be cooking it on there. kinda need to know what its saposto look like when it done.
Thank you.

It needs to cool just a bit just so you don’t burn your mouth (speaking from experience here! :p) but then it’s good to go!
