Hubby and I are attending a family party this weekend, and I thought I would share one of the recipes that I’m bringing. It is one of my family’s favorites. I didn’t create the recipe; I found it in a magazine years ago.
Fudgy Toffee Bars
1-3/4 cups flour
¾ cup confectioners’ sugar
¼ cup baking cocoa
¾ cup cold butter
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips, divided
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
½ cup flaked coconut
½ cup English toffee bits or almond brickle chips
In a bowl, combine flour, sugar and cocoa. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press firmly into a greased 13” x 9” x 2” baking pan. Bake at 350º for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, heat milk, vanilla and 1 cup of chocolate chips, stirring until smooth.
Pour over the crust. Sprinkle with nuts, coconut, toffee bits and remaining chocolate chips; press down firmly. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
Yield: 3 dozen
