These Toffee Bars are the quickest, easiest, and most delicious to make…ever!
This bar is the perfect marriage of toffee crust, chocolate, and pecans. This pan of bars never lasts very long when made.
These bars also freeze very well, so it is the perfect choice if you are looking for a “make ahead” type of dessert.
You will need: butter, brown sugar, an egg yolk, flour, vanilla, Hershey bars, and pecans.
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
First, cream butter, egg yolk, and brown sugar together. Mix well.
Add flour and vanilla, beat until well mixed.
Grease a 9×13 pan and spread dough evenly in pan.
Bake 25 minutes or until edges are brown, at 325 degrees.
Just a little warning…when you first take the crust out of the oven it may look a little “soupy”, that is ok, do not freak out!!! Once the crust cools, it will solidify and be delicous, I promise!
Remove crust from oven and add Hershey candy bars directly to the top of your crust. Let sit for approximately 3-5 minutes. You will see the top of the chocolate bars become shiny and that is when you know it is completely melted and ready to be spread.
Now take a spoon and using the back of it, spread the melted chocolate until evenly distributed across the top of the crust.
Now, add pecans to the top of melted chocolate.
Allow to completely cool so that the chocolate hardens. If you are in a hurry, you can place in the refrigerator for about an hour or until set. You can leave in refrigerator longer, just make sure you let the bars come back to room temp before cutting otherwise the chocolate will sometimes separate from the crust.
Cut and serve….yum!
1 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 Hershey bars
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cream butter, egg yolk, brown sugar, mix well. Add flour and vanilla, beat until well mixed.
Grease 9×13 pan and spread dough. Bake for 25 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove from oven and place candy bars on top of dough. Once melted, spread chocolate and add pecans.
Let bars cool (until the chocolate hardens) before cutting. If you cool the bars in the refrigerator, make sure you let the bars come back to room temp before cutting otherwise the chocolate will sometimes separate from the crust.
Extra Tip: You can also add some crushed toffee bits (found by the chocolate chips) to give the bars an extra layer of flavor and crunch.
