Toffee Bars

.. .. . .. .. ... .. . ... . .. .. .. .. . . . . .. . .. . . .. 

Everytime I serve these Toffee Bars there is a request for the recipe.  I know why, too.  They are so yummy.  A soft and chewy toffee center, smack dab in the middle of a delectable shortbread cookie crust and a chocolate coating on top.

Very simple to make, as well.

1/2 cup butter, plus 2 Tablespoons
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp. vanilla
Chocolate Chips (semi-sweet are best!)

In a mixing bowl, beat 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), sugar and salt.  Stir in flour, mix. (Actually, I just cut the butter into the flour - to make coarse crumbs.. do this!!  You'll love the flaky texture.)  Remove and press into a (lightly greased) 9x13" or 7"x11" baking pan.  Bake at 350* for 15 minutes or until edges are browned.  NOTE:  If you have a pampered chef bar pan (medium/small, 7'x11" size), you'll want to use this.  It makes these bars so awesome!!!!!!!!!!

In a saucepan, heat milk and 2 T. butter, just till bubbly.  Stir in 2 tsp. vanilla.  Pour over hot crust and return to oven for another 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from oven and sprinkle (a handful or your preference) chocolate chips over the top.  Let the chips "melt" nicely before spreading over the bars.

**These can be stored in the fridge or freezer.

One of my favorite bar cookies to add to the tray - for the Holiday's!
