If you’re looking for a quick and easy treat, consider these toffee cookie bars. The recipe is simple and the taste is decadent.
Deceptively Easy Toffee Cookie Bars – Ingredients
Graham Crackers (try to buy the square crackers instead of the rectangles. If you buy the rectangles, break them into squares. It’ll be easier to cut, serve and eat)
- 8 oz chocolate covered toffee bits – Heath toffee bits works perfectly.
- 1 1/2 cups chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 4 ounces (1 bar) bittersweet chocolate, chopped. I like Ghiradelli
- 1/2 to 1 tsp kosher salt
Deceptively Easy Toffee Cookie Bars – Directions
Step One: Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350.
Step Two: Line the pan with graham cracker squares.
Step Three: Sprinkle toffee evenly over graham crackers
Step Four: Sprinkle chopped almonds over toffee and graham crackers
Step Five: Melt butter and sugar over medium heat until melted and boiling. Turn down heat and keep at a simmer until mixture thickens and becomes a syrup. Continue stirring constantly to ensure mixture doesn’t burn or boil over.
Step Six: Pour butter/sugar mixture over graham cracker, nut, toffee layer and immediately put in the oven for 10 minutes.
Step Seven: Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate over the top.
Step Eight: Sprinkle salt over the top of the chocolate and let set for five minutes.
Step Nine: Cut into squares with a sharp knife or pizza cutter. If you’ve used square graham crackers then you can simply use the knife to separate the squares.
Step Ten: Allow to cool completely, serve with a tall glass of cold milk and enjoy!
