Super Soft Toffee Bars Recipe
Toffee is a treat that everyone deserves every once in a while, especially when it’s soft and gooey. Oh, when it’s soft and gooey you get put into a state of euphoria that you didn’t know was possible from a candy. The recipe is simple as well, all you need is butter, brown sugar, egg yolk, flour, and some salt and vanilla.
Add chocolate if you’re feeling adventurous but a word to the wise, you will want to be adventurous.
Grease your 13×9 pan. Real butter works best.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in microwave safe bowl.
Add melted butter, egg yolk, vanilla and brown sugar to large bowl. Mix.
Mix in salt.
Add flour and mix evenly.
Press evenly into greased pan.
Bake for 15-20 minutes and watch closely.
Immediately melt chocolate pieces on crust and evenly distribute.
Let cool for 45 minutes to an hour. Cut and serve.
While this recipe for toffee bars is easy and fast, the key to making them super soft is to monitor the crust for your oven and baking dish. This recipe takes 12 minutes in my mom’s oven and 20 in ours; if you overcook the crust you will not be able to cut through it and you will no longer have super soft toffee bars. 🙂
The crust will be slightly browned at the edges and you can tap the center with your finger and get a nice bounce back in texture.
Let your toffee bars cool in the baking pan for 45 minutes to an hour before you cut and serve them. I guarantee you they will go fast so get them while you can. They pair perfectly with a lovely glass of red wine or a cup of coffee or tea in the morning as well.
