Birda Mae's Recipe Corner:English Toffee Bars

I                                               I got this image fromhere
     Ingredients:

  •   2 cups of flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 plus 2/3 cups of cold butter,divided
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 cup Hershey's Milk chocolate chips


    Directions:



  1. Heat oven to 350oF.
  2. Combine flour and 1 cup brown sugar in large bowl. With pastry blender or fork, cut in 1/2 cup butter until fine crumbs form(a few large crumbs may remain). Press mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13x9x2 inch pan.  Sprinkle pecans over the crust Set aside.
  3. Combine remaining 1/3 cup brown sugar and 2/3 cup butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil.  Boil 30 seconds, stirring constantly, then immediately pour over pecans and crust.
  4. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until topping is bubbly  and golden; remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle
  5. milk chocolate chips evenly over top; press gently onto surface.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack.  Cut into bars.
I    I didn't think using HEB brand chocolate chips would alter this but it did the thing that totally saved it is the
bbutter.  I used Land o lakes and it was the best part of the bar!

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
