{more crafting ahead!}

There hasn't been much crafting going on around here lately! It's been a combination of having a garage sale, going out-of-town, and trying to catch up on some home projects (a.k.a. THE LAWN). We are having a wedding reception in our yard next month, and so we have been in overdrive trying to get the lawn under control and the yard spiffied up--planting flowers, bushes, etc.

Anyway...I have a bunch of projects lined up, and will be sharing them with you soon! Tomorrow Fireflies & Jellybeans will be here, and I'm really excited about that.

I also have MY MOST FAVORITE dessert to share with you today. Seriously, if you don't have the ingredients, you need to run right out to the store and get them today. They are that good! I like these warm, right out of the oven, with a scoop of french vanilla ice cream, but they are good anytime, anywhere!

CHOCOLATE CHIP TOFFEE BARS


2 1/3 c. flour
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 c. chocolate chips
1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 c. butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 c. coarsely chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)**OPTIONAL**
1 3/4 c. toffee bits (10 oz.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix the flour and sugar together. Cut in butter until the mixture is coarse crumbs, Add beaten egg and mix well. Stir in 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips and nuts. Reserve 1 1/2 c. of that mixture. Press the rest into a greased 9x13 pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the top in an even layer. Top with 1 1/2 c. toffee bits. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture on top, followed by the remaining chocolate chips. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle remaining toffee bits on top.

ENJOY!!!

I found your blog this morning, saw this yummy recipe, made a trip to the store at lunchtime and made a pan full of deliciousness this afternoon. This is my new favorite dessert! Thanks for sharing!

They look mouthwatering! and so simple to make!

but i haven't seen toffee bits around, are they the same as those chewy toffee candies?
another type of toffee i've seen are hard toffee candies with chocolate centres. do you think those would make good substitution?
