Salty 'N Sweet Dark Chocolate Toffee Bars

Updated on May 9, 2015

There are some things that make every recipe great. And when you find a recipe that has more than one of these key ingredients, you know you've got an amazing dish on your hands. This recipe is just that - dark chocolate, condensed milk, toffee, brown sugar, and salt - what else do you need?This dessert is not only delicious, but also simple to make and doesn't require a lot of ingredients - which means it's also a fabulous option for a cost effective treat. It's perfect for a comfort dish, bake sale, or group gathering - just don't eat too much!

The Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat or white flour
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup of butter
  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 1 bag of dark chocolate chips
  • 1 bag of Heath toffee bits
  • sea salt

Step 1

The Cookie Bottom

The cookie bottom is quick and easy to make. Just mix your flour, brown sugar, and butter together and then smash at the bottom of a 13x9 pan.Cook in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and then let cool while you work on Step 2.(And if you're wondering if it's safe to eat dough that doesn't include is)

I recommend using pyrex glass pans with covers to bake anything that may need to be stored. The lids are so convenient and the glass is much easier to clean than over types of pans.


Step 2

The Cookie Middle

The cookie middle has two big features: condensed milk and dark chocolate.Start by warming the condensed milk on the stove for 5 minutes. It will become thinner so that it is easier to pour on top of your cookie bottom. After you pour it over the bottom, put it back in the oven for about 15 minutes until the ends become golden brown.After removing this from the oven, let it cool for about 8 minutes. Then sprinkle the bag of dark chocolate chips over the mixture. Put back in the oven for 2 minutes.

Step 3

The Cookie Topping

The final step in this cookie process has three parts - the chocolate, the toffee, and the sea salt.Remove the cookie mixture from the oven and the chips should be glistening and melted. Take a spatula and gently spread the chocolate out. Try not to mix the condensed milk with the chocolate, but don't worry too much if it happens a little. Once the chocolate is evenly spread, sprinkle the bag of toffee bits onto the cookie layers. Gently press down so that the toffee sticks to the chocolate. Sprinkle sea salt over the toffee.Your cookies are now complete! All that is left is waiting for them to completely cool.

What is your favorite dessert?
