Heath Toffee Cookie Bars

A really satisfying, CHOLESTEROL FREE treat!

  • 1/2 cup margarine, softened
  • 3/4 cup unpacked brown sugar
  • 1 egg beater
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • *1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 TBSP Heath toffee pieces (baking aisle)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, egg, and vanilla. Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl. Beat in flour and salt until combined.
  2. Spread dough evenly in a 13x9 inch baking pan sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for about 18 minutes or until edges begin to brown and surface is dry. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Cover with a cookie sheet or foil and let stand about 2 minutes or until chocolate is softened; spread evenly with a rubber scraper (or leave it, it's just a different look!). Sprinkle with toffee pieces.
  3. Let cool in pan on wire rack 30 minutes. Cut into 12 bars.

  1. I love that there's no eggs in this, kinda means I can taste the cookie dough without worries. Of course, the final result looks so delicious that I guess it would be worth the wait. I have a sweet treat linky on my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link your cookies up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com
