I like to give the people what they ask for, and this…well, I could not just let it slip by without mentioning.
The other day one of the top searches on the blog was, I kid you not, “mom in underwear”. It was followed by “Santa Claus physics”, but that one make a little bit more sense, because of this post. But let us get back to mom in underwear.
So I thought, what the heck? Why not show you all what a mom in underwear looks like. Here you go
Well now that I am sure I have made my mom feel totally violated with the whole internet world seeing her in underwear, I think we can move on to these fabulous toffee bars.
These cookies are a recipe that came from Gram, so you can bet your booty that they’re gonna be good.
These are definitely one of my favorites. And a for sure family favorite.
Gram’s toffee bars consist of a pretty basic cookie base that is brown sugary and toffee-like, then a thin layer of chocolate, and a sprinkling a chopped nuts if you feel like it.
This is a super basic and easy recipe that you just have to give a try, because I am sure that you will all fall in love.
Gram’s Toffee Cookie Bars
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts, optional
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Mix in egg yolk. Add in vanilla extract. Lastly, mix in the flour. Spread dough into an even layer in a jelly roll pan.
- Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate chips in an even layer over the baked cookie bars and place back in oven for 1-2 minutes. Using a knife or spatula, spread chocolate into an even layer and, if using, sprinkle chopped nuts over top. Let bars set in fridge for about an hour, or until chocolate sets up. When bars are cut up, cut into individual bars and enjoy! Store bars in tupperware container at room temp, or in fridge if you prefer them cold.
