Chew on This | Aunt Margie's Toffee Bars

Aunt Margie's Toffee Bars have been a holiday must forever...scrumptiously delicious, you
can't eat just one.  Well I can't...that's why I make them all the time.  Easy, fast, awesome!

This is what you will need:
Flour, butter, brown sugar, an egg yolk, vanilla, chocolate chips and toasted walnuts.

I always toast and slightly salt the walnuts...really brings out the flavor.  I prepare the nuts

Then in a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, flour, egg yolk, and vanilla.  Mix until blended.

Now pat out the dough onto a 9x13" ungreased cookie sheet.  Off to the oven it goes.

Bake at 350℉ for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and sprinkle chocolate chips over
the crust and return to the oven for 2 more minutes.  Remove and spread the chocolate
goodness all over the crust.  Yummmmmm!

Now sprinkle the chopped, slightly salted, toasted walnuts over the gooey chocolate.

It just doesn't get better than this...please cut into squares when cool, if you can wait that long!
