Toffee Bars

  • Author: Meagan

This is an old recipe from Mom that was regularly made by a family at church for potlucks.  I think that all baking tastes the best on the day that it’s made, but these bars can definitely hold their own for a couple of days, if they last that long.  They’re basically a variation of a chocolate-chip cookie.



Toffee Bars

Cream together;

1 1/2 c. EACH butter, softened AND brown sugar

Add and blend together;

2 egg yolks AND 1 t. vanilla

Then add 3 c. flour

Press into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes – if it gets too brown, it will be too hard when it cools.  Immediately after you take it out of the oven, sprinkle with about 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips, and let sit until the chips are soft and melted.  Spread the chocolate chips so they look like frosting – I find this easiest with the back of a spoon –  and sprinkle with chopped nuts (optional) – I prefer pecans.  I also recommend that you cut them before the chips harden again.

Here’s the recipe for a smaller, 8 x 8 pan;

Cream together;

1 c. EACH butter, softened AND brown sugar

Add and blend together;

1 egg yolk AND 1/2 t. vanilla

Then add 2 c. flour


Press into a greased 8 x 8 pan and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.  Sprinkle on about a 3/4 cup of chocolate chips and proceed as above.  Always yum.
