Recipe #277: Chewy Toffee Almond Bars

I don't quite know what compelled me to make a dessert, since I don't have a sweet tooth, but I'll make exceptions for both toffee and coconut.  And look, here's both in a really easy recipe!  I found this one on the back of the 8oz bag of Heath English Toffee Bits (Bits 'O Brickle Toffee Bits).

Shouldn't it be O' instead of 'O?  Just noticed that.  ANYWAY, here we go:


2 sticks butter, softened
1/2 c sugar
2 c all-purpose flour
8oz package Heath Bits 'O Brickle Toffee Bits
3/4 c light corn syrup
1 c sliced almonds, divided
3/4 cup sweetened coconut flakes


Heat oven to 350F.  Grease 9x13 baking pan.

Beat butter and sugar until fluffy (this made me laugh).  Gradually add flour, beating until well blended.  Press dough evenly in prepared pan.

Bake 15-20 minutes until edges are lightly browned.  Meanwhile, combine toffee bits and corn syrup in medium saucepan.  Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until toffee is melted.  Stir in 1/2c almonds and 1/2c coconut.  Spread toffee mixture to within 1/4" of edges of crust.  Sprinkle remaining coconut and almonds over top.

Bake an additional 15 minutes or until bubbly.  Cool completely.  Cut into bars- makes 36.
