Toffee Bars

A classic from my Grandma's recipe box, you can't go wrong with these shortbread chocolate delights. I had at least 5 (probably 8) immediately after they cooled... they're dangerously good (honestly like crack). Perfect for a party or bringing into work (if you like your coworkers that much)!

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time20 minsCook Time25 minsTotal Time45 mins

 1 cup Butter
 1 cup Brown Sugar
 2 cups Flour
 1 Egg Yolk
 1 tsp Vanilla
 ¼ tsp Baking Powder
 8 oz Chocolate Chips

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a small cookie sheet (11x10 or equivalent).

2

In large bowl, mix butter and brown sugar until creamy consistency.

3

Add in egg yolk and vanilla. Mix well.

4

Sift in flour and baking powder. Mix until just combined.

5

Spread dough into greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes. Cookie layer is done when slightly golden brown around the edges.

6

Immediately after taking cookie sheet out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate bits across the surface. (I use chocolate chips but you can use a chopped up chocolate bar).

7

Let the chocolate sit for a minute, then spread the chocolate evenly across the cookie. BONUS: I like to sprinkle salt across the top.

8

Cut into small squares while still warm, then let sit until cool.
