Crack Bars

I still don’t know what to call these bars. They are a toffee bar, but also a 7 layer type bar, but with a shortbread base and top. A combination of the best of two types of bars is what they are.

But my husband came up with the temporary name when he beaked at me “I’m trying to diet and you made these bars! They are like crack, I just ate 6!”

Because I held him down and forced them down his throat. Yah-huh. Don’t think so buddy.

Damn his skinny genes anyway that he can eat 6 of them. Age will catch up with you darling, just you wait and see.

They are really, really good sweet squares.

Ingredients Needed:

1 1/2 cups of flour
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of butter
1 can of condensed sweetened milk (300ml)
1 cup of chocolate chips
1 cup of toffee bits
1 cup of almonds

Kick the tires and light the fires to 350.

 

 

Combine the sugar and flour then cut in the cold butter.

Press 2/3 of the mixture into a 9×9 pan saving the rest as topping for later. Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle the cup of toffee bits on top.

Then the almonds.

Then the chocolate chips.

Then pour the condensed milk over top evenly. Wait a couple minutes for the condensed milk to settle into the grooves between ingredients a bit.

Then take the rest of the crumb mix and sprinkle it over the top.

Until it looks like this! Yum. Try not to scoop it out and eat it now.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, until the top is wonderfully browned and crackly. Let the pan cool completely and when it’s cool, slice it.
