Chocolate Toffee Bars

I have a confession to make. Lately brownies just haven’t been cuttin’ it. It’s almost like they aren’t chocolatey enough. And I’m usually never happy with the texture. I’d rather have fudge or a chocolate cupcake—not something in between. I’ve been searching for a super chocolatey recipe to replace my usual brownies that was also really easy—and preferably only made with ingredients I/you probably already have.


I finally stumbled across something perfect; something that meets all my needs. These are so delicious; it’s taking all my will power not to eat the whole pan. I’m headed to the beach tomorrow and I’d like to be able to take some with me. Also I’d rather not have a belly full of these things when I’m rolling around in the sand.

Don’t worry brownies. I haven’t turned my back on you forever. I still love you fresh out of the oven smothered in ice cream and chocolate fudge.  

{1 cup flour  ♥  1/2 cup light brown sugar  ♥  1/2 stick butter, coldish}
I ran out of regular flour so I had to throw in some whole wheat flour
. That makes these healthy right?

{1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces  ♥  1/2 cup light brown sugar } 

Chocolate Topping
{half-bag milk chocolate chips}

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 
2. In a bowl mix the flour and brown sugar. Cut in the cold butter using a fork.
3. Grease a 8x8 inch pan and press the flour mixture into the bottom of the pan.
4. In a small sauce pan melt the ingredients for the toffee.  Stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat until boiling and let boil for about 30 seconds. Pour immediately over the crust.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until topping is bubbling and crust is golden brown. Remove from the oven. Immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips over the bubbling toffee. Cover every inch!
6.  Try to let it cool (lots of will power involved). Cut into squares!
