I love to make desserts and sometimes I need to throw together something delicious that can feed a crowd. In these cases I make cookie bars! You just mix, add them to a pan and bake. Then you can cut them into as many bars as you want. They are a lot easier than cookies and they taste just as good!
The other night I needed a fast dessert. I had just made my chocolate chip cookie bars for the same group. I always keep dessert items in my pantry so I can whip up just about any dessert I need. I saw the toffee chips and knew I wanted to make cookie bars.
These Toffee Cookie bars were so easy and good. Plus they were not too sweet but enough to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Here is the printable version of Toffee Cookie Bars.
Toffee Cookie Bars
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 bag toffee bits (about 1½ cups)
- Preheat your oven to 350*. Grease a 9×13 pan and set aside.
Using a mixer (I always use my Kitchen Aid Mixer) mix the butter and brown sugar on medium speed until fluffy – about 2 minutes. Add the egg, vanilla, and salt.
- Slowly add the flour and mix until just combined.
- Add the dough evenly into the bottom of the pan. Bake at 350 degrees until pale golden on top, about 15-20 minutes. (It’s better to undercook than overcook!)
- Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the crust. Return the cookie bars to the oven for 2 minutes until the chocolate chips are beginning to melt.
- Remove the pan from the oven and spread the chocolate evenly over the crust using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle toffee pieces evenly over the chocolate.
Tip – While the bars are still warm, use a plastic knife to cut them into bars. The plastic knife will not pull the bars and make a mess. It should give you nice cut lines. I dont like to wait for them to cool because the chocolate gets hard and it makes it harder to cut.
Serve and enjoy!
