Toffee Cookie Bars

These are pretty simple cookies.  Ok, really, really simple.  But I always say that things do not need to be complicated to be good and in fact I’ve found that the opposite is sometimes true.  I’ve worked very hard on some things that came out just meh, while I’ve thrown a few ingredients together and made some amazing things.

These cookie bars fall into that second category!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups butter, softened to room temperature
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, brought to room temperature
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ t salt
  • 2 T vanilla
  • 2 12-oz bags, semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cups, Heath English Toffee Bits

Directions

Butter and flour a 13” x 9” baking dish and set it aside.

Put the butter, brown sugar and eggs into a large bowl and beat until combined.  Add in the flour, salt and vanilla and beat again until well combined.  That’s it for your dough.IMG_1425

Pour the dough into your prepared dish and spread it evenly.  IMG_1426Bake the dish at 350 for about 25-30 minutes or until the top and edges start to get a nice golden brown.  Put the dish on a wire rack to cool.IMG_1428

While it’s cooling get a small to medium bowl and pour the semisweet chocolate chips into it.  Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave (15 second intervals, stirring after each interval, and stopping once most of the chips are melted.  Once you get to that point take the bowl out of the microwave and keep stirring until all the chips are melted.)

Pour the melted chocolate over the cooked dough – it doesn’t have to be cool (but it can be).   Spread it so that it’s even.

Finally, while the chocolate is still hot (important!) take your toffee bits and sprinkle them over the chocolate.IMG_1434

Cover the dish with aluminum foil and transfer it to the refrigerator so that the chocolate cools and the toffee bits stick to it.

Once the chocolate has cooled, take the dish out, cut into bars and enjoy!IMG_1435
