Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars


My theme lately seems to be “layers!” Layers and layers of chocolate! The PBK Brownies had layers. My Chocolate Chip Oreo Brownie Bars had layers. This week it’s Pillsbury’s Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars! They have a graham cracker toffee crust, topped with fudgy chocolate, topped with chocolate chip cookie dough and more toffee chips. That’s three layers of deliciousness! Seriously, how can you go wrong with a recipe that starts with this…?

Make the bottom layer first by melting 1/2 cup butter, then mix the butter with 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs and 3/4 cup of toffee bis.

Press this mixture into a greased 13 x 9 inch pan.

Refrigerate for 15 minutes. While the crust is cooling, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare the second layer!

In a 2 qt saucepan, heat 1 TBLS butter

A 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk

and most of a 12 oz bag of chocolate chips

Over medium heat, stir frequently until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from the heat and quickly stir in 1 tsp Vanilla extract.

Spread this deliciousness over the graham cracker crust

In a mixing bowl, break up a roll of softened chocolate chip cookie dough. Mix the dough with a 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs until blended. Crumble the dough evenly over the chocolate layer. Sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup toffee bits and the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips.

Bake for about 25-35 minutes or until it’s golden brown!

Cool two hours before cutting!

Time to eat!
