English Toffee Bars

Printable Recipe

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 (12-oz) pkg milk chocolate chips

1/2 cup pecans
1/2 cup almonds

To toast the pecans and almonds
Spread them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees, stirring often. This will take 5-10 minutes. When they turn a golden brown, and you get a strong, nutty odor, they are done. It will seem like they are taking a long time, but once they start to brown, they brown very quickly. So watch carefully. Once they have cooled, place the nuts in a food processor or a blender and process until finely ground.

For the Bars
Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg yolk and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in the flour. Pat into a greased 9 x 13" pan and bake 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with the chocolate chips. Spread when melted. Sprinkle on the nuts. Cool and cut into bars.
