After a nice low key weekend, I have had a pretty productive no make up Monday. Bills paid, more thank you notes written, calls made, laundry done, bathroom cleaned, dishwasher emptied (I had a broken glass – boo) AND a trip to the gym.
Which I just have to tell you – the girl beside me today on the elliptical machine had on full makeup (I don’t mean I’ve been at work make-up but pageant make up), her hair rolled and curled and down around her shoulders and wait for it – chandelier earrings.
So, since I have a few minutes to spare before time to start dinner I decided to make a dessert.
Chocolate Toffee Cookie Bars
That just sounds good, doesn’t’ it??
What you will need –
- 1 2/3 cups flour
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup toffee bits
Preheat oven to 350° and spray a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and brown sugar on medium speed until fluffy.
Then add egg and vanilla, mix well.
Slowly add in flour mixture and beat on a low speed until thoroughly combined.
Fold in chocolate chips and toffee bits.
Spread batter into baking dish and press dough evenly into pan with a sheet of parchment paper.
Bake for 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown.
Let cool completely on a wire rack.
Mmm, Mmm good!
These remind me a lot of blondies, actully – they are more like a cookie cake from the Great American Cookie Co. – you just need fudge icing!!!
I think next time I may add nuts.
I served these warm with whipped cream 🙂
I posted this less than two days after I made them – the pan full is already gone!
