How to Make Toffee Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat together the sugar and butter or margarine until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolks and vanilla. Stir in the flour and salt.
  3. Spread the dough in a greased 13 X 9 X 2-inch baking pan. Bake until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes. The texture will be soft.
  4. Remove from the oven and immediately place the chocolate pieces on the hot cookie base. Let stand until the chocolate softens, then spread it evenly with a spatula. Sprinkle with nuts.
  5. While still warm, cut into bars about 2 X 1-1/2 inches.
