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!

Ingredients

1 c
butter, softened
1/2 c
sugar
2 c
all purpose flour
1 1/3 c
heath toffee bits (8 oz. package)
3/4 c
karo light corn syrup
1 c
almonds, chopped (or sliced--whatever you have on hand), divided
3/4 c
sweetend coconut flakes--divided
1 c
chocolate chips (i used milk chocolate)

Step-By-Step

1Heat Oven to 350*. Grease the sides of a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan-Well!
2Beat butter and sugar in mixer until light and fluffy. Gradually add the flour, beating until well blended.
3Press dough evenly into prepared pan.
4Bake 15 to 20 mins or until edges are lightly browned.
5Meanwhile, 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)
6Stir in the Almonds and coconut (1/2 cup of each) into the corn syrup mixture. Turn off heat.
7Spread 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.
8Bake 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)
9Cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. I got 36 out of the pan
