Would You Like Chocolate With That? ~ Rich Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Whenever I take these fabulous bars somewhere, I am asked for the recipe. They are rich and yummy, with just the right amount of chocolate! This recipe is from Hershey's Kitchens.


2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1-1/3 cups (8 oz.) toffee bits, divided

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 13x9x2 in. baking pan.

2. Combine flour and brown sugar in large bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg; mix well. Stir in 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips and all the nuts; set aside 1-1/2 cups mixture.

3. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 10 minutes. Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over hot crust; set aside 1/4 cup toffee bits. Sprinkle remaining toffee bits over sweetened condensed milk. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture and remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips over top.

4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Top with reserved toffee bits. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. About 48 bars.
