Hello, this is the season for toffee bars. I love bars because they are dense, easy to make and have a strong base. I have a toffee bar recipe that combines chocolate, brown sugar, butter vanilla and toasted pecans.

When I find a new recipe I always glance at the ingredient list. I am not great in the kitchen, but what I lack in talent I make up for in personality!

What is not to love about a chocolate-based bar for the holidays? The ingredients tend to be easy (familiar) and these desne bars are baked in a 10×15 size baking pan.

I found this in one of my favorite cookbooks. Elizabeth is a southern girl, but this Colorado girl loves toffee bars.

TOFFEE BAR RECIPES

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 STICKS OF BUTTER, SOFTENED
  • 1CUP LIGHTLY BROWN SUGAR (PACKED)
  • 1 TEASPOON VANILLA
  • 1/4 TEASPOON MAPLE EXTRACT (OPTIONAL)
  • 2 CUPS FLOUR
  • 1/4 TEASPOON SALT
  • 1 CUP SEMI-SWEET CHOCOLATE CHIPS
  • 1 CUP COARSELY CHOPPED TOASTED PECANS (OR WALNUTS) I USED PECANS

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. PREHEAT OVEN TO 325.
  2. BEAT THE BUTTER, BROWN SUGAR, VANILLA & OPTIONAL MAPLE EXTRACT IN A LARGE BOWL
  3. ADD FLOUR AND SALT, AND BEAT UNTIL COMBINED
  4. STIR IN CHOCOLATE CHIPS AND PECANS (OR WALNUTS)
  5. SPREAD IN AN UNGREASED 15X10-INCH BAKING PAN
  6. BAKE APPROXIMATE 20-25 MINUTES *** see note below
  7. COOL COMPLETELY, CUT INTO SQUARES
  8. STORE IN AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER.

In full disclosure, I overbaked these bars. At twenty minutes they looked way underbaked so I added an extra four minutes to the approximate baking time. Twice.

By the time these toffee bars cooled, I realized they were done closer to 2o minutes.

I will remake these bars because what is not to love about brown sugar, butter and chocolate?

This is a reminder of why I love these no-bake bars this time of year too!

I would love it if you pinned this to your Pinterest boards before you leave!
