The boys and I are making up cookie trays today and despite all of the yummy treats on them, we needed just one more thing…. These Easy Toffee Bars were the perfect addition! Seriously, they take about 5 minutes to whip up, 15 minutes in the oven, and about a half an hour to cool and set up.

I ended up making a double batch because we needed quite a few and several bars seemed to magically disappear when my boys were hovering around the kitchen… It’s a mystery.

So let me tell you what I love about these bars. They’re easy. So easy.  Butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, flour. Boom! The topping is melted milk chocolate chips and pecans. I have been known to use Hershey’s bars in place of the chocolate chips if I have some on hand. Always a good call!

I used pecans because we have some raw walnut allergies in the family but walnuts would also be delicious in this recipe, or even sliced almonds! Yum!

I like to score the bars while they are still warm but you can skip this step if you like. I just use my pizza cutter and it makes the cutting of the bars easier later on. Your call.

I like to cut the bars into squares and then cut the squares in half. I think they’re easier to hold and they look super cute like that on the cookie trays.
