A cookie crust topped with chocolate chips, scattered with bits of buttery toffee. These double chip toffee bars are as fantastic as they sound. Chocolate and toffee in handheld bar form? What’s not to love? Rich, decadent and the best part is that they are ridiculously easy to make! And quick too. These double chip toffee bars are about to be your new favorite dessert.

This month for Secret Recipe Club I was paired up with Edesia’s Notebook. You may recall I have been lucky enough to have Lesa’s blog once before and I created these Raspberry Apricot Crumb Bars that were inspired by one of her recipes. This month Lesa tempted me over and over again. I struggled between her Layered Mocha Cheesecake and her Irish Cream Coffee Muffins, both of which I will definitely be making in the future! But ultimately, once I discovered her Triple Chip Bars I knew I had to give them a try.

I adore all things chocolate and toffee, so this was a perfect fit. After the family and I sampled a few at home, I knew they were too dangerous to have at home for fear we may inhale the whole batch so I delivered them to work. There they disappeared before lunch time and left us all in a happy sugar coma. These double chip toffee bars are definitely a winner! You’re gonna love them.

Enjoy!

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 24 servings

Double Chip Toffee Bars

Layers of cookie crust, chocolate chips and buttery toffee bits in bar form.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (8 oz.) package toffee baking bits, divided
  • 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick baking spray then line with parchment paper, leaving an edge overhanging on either side so that you can easily lift the bars out later. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and brown sugar. Add butter and using a pastry blender cut in the butter until it looks like coarse crumbs. Add the egg and work until evenly moistened.
  3. Set aside 1 1/4 cups of the mixture. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and pour sweetened condensed milk over crust. Reserve 1/4 cup of toffee and sprinkle remaining toffee over sweetened condensed milk.
  5. Stir white chocolate chips into reserved crust mixture then sprinkle over toffee bits. Sprinkle semi-sweet chocolate chips over crust. Return to oven and bake 25-30 minutes until golden. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle reserved toffee on top then set on a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Once cooled, remove from baking dish and cut into bars.

Anything with Toffee in the title catches my attention. I love bar cookies because they are so easy to transport and everyone loves them. These are now on my list to make!

Kate, your comment was like a ray of sunshine. I think I smiled harder than I have in weeks when I read it. I missed you too and thanks so much for making my day xox0. Having said that, I need these toffee chip bars in my life, big time. I remember all the varieties of cookie bars my friend’s moms used to make when I was growing up, and my mother couldn’t cook or bake to save her life, so I was always wicked excited when I got some home baked goodness elsewhere. Yours remind me of those so much, and I want to grab a fork and just eat it right out of the pan, like we did back then!

Oh, toffeeholic here too ;D
