Spring-boarded off of a recipe on the back of a bag of Heath toffee bits. Had to come up with a quick dessert bar to take to a football game party. They were a hit!

How To Make chewy toffee almond joy bars

  • 1
    Heat Oven to 350*. Grease the sides of a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan-Well!
  • 2
    Beat butter and sugar in mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add the flour, beating until well blended.
  • 3
    Press dough evenly into prepared pan.
  • 4
    Bake 15 to 20 mins or until edges are lightly browned.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, while the crust is baking, combine the toffee bits and corn syrup in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stiring quite often until the toffee bits are almost melted (about 10 to 12 mins)
  • 6
    Stir in the Almonds and coconut (1/2 cup of each) into the corn syrup mixture. Turn off heat.
  • 7
    Spread this toffee/almond/ coconut mixture onto the crust (dont worry, my crust was still hot from the oven)to within 1/4 inch of the edges of the crust. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of almonds and remaining 1/2 cup of coconut over the top.
  • 8
    Bake for 15 mins more and then remove from oven and sprinkle Chocolate chips on top. Place back in oven and bake for an additional 5 to 7 mins until bubbly. You can leave as is, or spread the melted chocolate over the almond/coconut mixture with a small spatula. (I left mine as is)
  • 9
    Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. I got 36 out of the pan
