We were going to some friends to enjoy homemade pizza – but since the snow plow hasn’t been by yet, and the snow keeps falling, we’ll stay at home.
It’s going to be another one of those snowy – stay – in – and watch a movie – kind of family nights.
Perfect for cuddling, and quilts, and of course – chocolate!
But then – every night is perfect for chocolate!
These yummy treats were fast and easy to make – and won’t last long!
Chocolate Toffee Bars
1 cup flour
1/2 packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (we used walnuts)
For the crust: Mix together the flour and brown sugar. Cut in the butter until crumbs are formed. Press into the bottom of an ungreased 9 x 13 inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Let the crust cool slightly while mixing up the topping.
Mix the brown sugar, flour, eggs, and baking powder until well-blended. Stir in the chocolate chips and the nuts.
Pour the topping evenly over the crust. Bake at 375 degrees for 18 – 20 minutes longer or until it is a deep golden brown and the center is set.
Cool completely before cutting and indulging!
