Fudgy Chocolate Chip Toffee Bar

Let's be honest, every girl wants to look 
great in their wedding dress
and every Mother of the Bride wants to look 
pretty good in her dress too
so we haven't been having a lot of 
luscious goodies around the house lately,
but I saw this on the Internet
 and fell in love with
Shannon's story on Bake. Frost. Repeat.
how her mother loves that she has a blog
 and searches the internet for
things she wants her to make. 

 I have a niece who does that - she pins things
and tells me to bake them for her!  Besides her pictures look so so yummy
that I was hooked in immediately.  

Shannon said her mom found it on the Pillsbury website.

Well, let me tell you that Shannon's picture
 wants you to make them, more
than Pillsbury's and certainly more than mine.
  (I am thinking she used milk
chocolate chips, because mine
 were a lot darker chocolate than hers).

But even though mine aren't as pretty
 as hers, they will make your mouth water
as you raise one to your lips!  
These are incredible and disappeared so quickly.

Fudgy Chocolate Chip Toffee Bar

1/2 C. butter, melted
2 C. graham cracker crumbs
8 oz. bag Heath Bits o' Brickle toffee bits (1 1/2 C.)
2 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 T. butter
16 oz pkg. refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
(I used the Nestles - the flat one that cuts into squares)
1 tsp. vanilla

Heat oven to 350.  Spray 9x13 inch pan with Pam.
Place the refrigerated cookie dough on the
counter to warm up about 10 minutes.

In a bowl mix the melted butter, 1 1/2 C. graham 
cracker crumbs and 3/4 C. toffee bits.  Press
firmly into the bottom of the pan.  I used the
bottom of a measuring cup to do that.  Place
in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile in a microwave safe bowl, place
the chocolate chips, sweetened condensed
milk and butter.  Microwave for 30 seconds,
then stir and microwave in 30 second 
intervals, stirring each time, until the
fudge mix is smooth.  Stir in the vanilla.

Remove the pan from the fridge and spoon
on the fudge center.

In another bowl, place the softened cookie
dough and the remaining 1/2 C. graham 
cracker and blend that together with your
fingers.  Crumble it evenly over the fudge
center and then top with remaining 3/4 C.
toffee bits.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Let cool
on counter completely before cutting.
(Even when you have cooled it 
completely, the fudge center is pretty soft.)

Let me just say that hanging around with
Shannon's mom could be dangerous-ly fun! 
Looks like I need to spend some more
time on Pillsbury's site too!  
Super duper Yum!


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. Your bars look pretty irresistible and delicious to me! I haven't been on Pillsbury's site in ages~ love the combination of toffee, chocolate and cookie dough!

  2. I don't know whether to thank you or not~just when I decide to give up making sweets for a while I come across your post today! I am pinning to test my will power, and just in case it doesn't hold up, I will have the recipe!

  3. Hey girl!
    Our version of these does not have the toffe bits in them...wil have to try this. I have made what we call
    "Fudge Nut Bars" for MANY years. probably 30. I htink that other people have made something similar that are callled "Jubilee Jumbles", or something like that. Definitely will ahve to try this version, GF of course! I have avoided treats....I have too many issues with treats. Mostly, I eat them! I got the Hot Fudge to work but I used my sister's recipe. My microwave died and so haven't been able to use yours, but I will!
    Thanks so much for your help and sweet heart!
    Hugs to you, my friend!

  4. I meant I haven't been able to use your recipe....NOT your microwave! LOLOL

  5. These just look dangerous and oh, so good! I'm pinning these for a special occasion!

  6. Wow, those look so, so good! I enjoyed seeing them and I need to make them soon. Yum!

  7. Yum! If only I could taste via your photo.
