Fudgy Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars



My Mom loves that I have a food blog. I think she sits up at night on her computer and finds things for me to make. She found this recipe for Fudgy Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars on Pillsbury's website and immediately handed it to me when I walked through her front door. I made it for a family function and it was gone within minutes.  

Fudgy Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars
from Pillsbury

1/2 C butter, melted
2 C graham cracker crumbs (32 squares)
1 8 oz. bag toffee bits
1 roll refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 12oz. bag chocolate chips
1 14oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 T butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

Grease 13x9 baking dish and heat oven to 350.

Have the roll of cookie dough sitting out for around 10 minutes to soften up.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the 1/2 cup of melted butter, 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs and 3/4 cup of toffee bits. Pour mixture into the greased pan and press evenly until mixture covers bottom of pan. Refrigerate for around 15 minutes.

In a 2 qt saucepan, heat the milk, chocolate chips and the tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Stir frequently until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Spread the mixture over the graham cracker crumb mixture.

In another medium mixing bowl, break up the cookie dough and stir in the remaining 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs until blended. Crumble the mixture evenly over the chocolate layer and the sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup toffee bits on top.

Bake for about 25-35 minutes or until it's golden brown. Cool completely before cutting, probably around 2 or more hours.

  27. Phenomenally delish . I added some PB chips and used homemade cookie dough. Huge hit (with me and the party attendees)

    1. How much dough did you use for it? I also want to use made from scratch cookie dough, but I don't know how much to use for it. Thanks!

  30. I am in Australia and am wondering about some of the ingredients, what are the toffee bits and what are the Grahams Crackers and also the cookie dough - I don't think we have that here. Can you please suggest substitutes. thanks. Karyn

  31. Shannon, we LOVED your cookies so much and found them on Pinterest! We had to blog about them as well. http://myjanedoes.blogspot.com/2012/08/cook-like-jane-chocolate-toffee-bars.html. THANK YOU for the Pin and the recipe. Jane made adaptations but they were amazing.

  32. I made these following the recipe twice and they were quickly devoured. Everyone loved them. They are easy to make. Tonight I made them but changed up the recipe. I used peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips, and peanut butter cookie dough instead of chocolate chip cookie dough. I accidentally left out the vanilla, but it didn't make any difference, they are yummy!

    I'm going to try butterscotch and oatmeal cookie dough next time. Thanks for the recipe!

  33. I made this recipe for Saturday's LSU game and everyone loved it! It is now one of my favorite recipes and will be included in my Christmas Candy tin of homemade treats. And my husband suggested topping it with vanilla ice cream while it's still warm - yum!

  34. Made these for our church group and they were a huge hit! Delicious!

  35. Just wondering if I can use a Nestlé chocolate chip cookie recipe in place of a roll of refrigerated cookie dough?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't see why you couldn't use your own cookie recipe in place of the refrigerated dough. Have fun experimenting!

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are DELICIOUS!

  38. Has anyone tried freezing these cookies? Wondering how they would hold up?

    ReplyDelete
  39. These came out great. I lined the pan with foil and it lifted up easily. I added a cap of almond extract to the crust. I microwaved the chocolate/milk/butter/vanilla for 1-1/2 min. Used
    a stand mixer for blending the cookie dough and crumbs. Refrigerate before cutting. I love this recipe!!!! SO YUMMY!!! Thanks.
