Toffee Bar Brownies

Who doesn’t love brownies! It seems everyone has their own favorite version of this American classic. Fudgy or cakey, frosted or unfrosted, with or without chocolate chips, brownies show up at potlucks, picnics and bake sales. Brownies are every kid’s favorite after-school school snack.

 

I weeded the garden this morning, then tackled cleaning the garage which is when I started to get very hungry for something that contained a lot of chocolate. So I left the garage and entered the kitchen to bake up a batch of brownies. I decided I’d try a new Brownie version by adding Toffee Bar candy bars to the batter. And chocolate chips. And, might as well go all the way, chopped toasted walnuts. I was hoping this would satisfy that little voice inside me that said I NEED something chocolatey and sweet.

Good news! My Toffee Bar Brownies are 5 star brownies. They are the best dessert ever and turned out as delicious as I had hoped, cakey and gooey on the inside with a little crunch from the walnuts and toffee. No frosting needed! These are plenty sweet and satisfying just as they are. It just took a few minutes to mix up the batter, then 25 minutes in the oven and, voila, chocolate heaven!

Lunch for this lucky girl today was Toffee Bar Brownies, still a little warm, and a tall glass of ice cold milk. I think the garage will have to wait for another day! Baking is so much more fun.

I give these Toffee Bar Brownes 5 BIG stars!

Toffee Bar Brownies

Yield: 16
Author: Pipka
Prep time: 15 MinTotal time: 15 Min

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of Land O Lakes unsalted butter
  • 2 ounces Bakers unsweetened chocolate bars
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Pipka’s Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 Toffee Candy Bars, chopped into chunky pieces
  • 3/4 cup toasted chopped walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree. Grease an 8 x 8 inch pan, then line the bottom and sides with parchment paper, (the grease will hold the paper in place). Now, using a brush, butter the parchment paper lining, getting into all the corners.
  2. In a small pan, melt the butter and unsweetened chocolate bars over medium heat. Stir to incorporate. Then set this aside.
  3. In a mixer bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Add the melted chocolate. Whisk together the flour and salt and slowly add to the batter. This will be a thin batter. Stir in the chocolate chips, walnuts and 3/4 cup of the toffee bars. The batter will now be much thicker. Carefully spoon the batter into the prepared baking pan. Push the batter to the corners and sides so it is evenly distributed. Scatter the remaining toffee bar mixture on top. Dampen your hands and gently press the candy into the batter.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes.
  5. Place the brownies on a cooling rack for 15 mintues. Then invert the brownies onto another cooling rack. Remove the parchment paper and allow the brownies to cool. Invert onto a platter, cut into squares and enjoy! You can store the brownies in an air tight container or wrap individual bars in a plastic wrap.

Notes:

Every oven is different so watch the backing time closely. After 20 minutes, insert a toothpick to check, it should be clean.

Try adding different candy bars, just be sure to chop them up coarsely.
