Father’s Day weekend is another holiday that expectations are high for me to produce something fabulous in the kitchen. While some years I go with a new dessert, most of the time I stick to an old favorite. Dads are creatures of habit and they usually know what they like. Father’s Day isn’t a time to experiment because I don’t want to accidentally make something new that just misses the mark on their day, right? I leave the new dessert experiments for generic holidays such as Labor Day or 4th of July.

This year I made one of my favorite go-to desserts that I knew would be a hit. Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars are a hit every time. Serve them warm with vanilla ice cream and you will instantly be everyone’s BFF.

Ingredients:

2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup packed light brown sugar

3/4 cup butter

1 egg, slightly beaten

2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, divided

1 cup chopped nuts

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk

1 3/4 cup Hersheys Heath English Toffee Bits

 

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

2. Combine flour and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

3. Add egg and blend well with a stand or hand mixer. Stir in 1 – 1/2 cups chocolate chips and nuts. Set aside 1 – 1/2 cups of the mixture.

4. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes.
