These cookie bars fall into that second category!
- 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
DirectionsButter 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.
Pour the dough into your prepared dish and spread it evenly. Bake 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.
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.
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!
