Almond Toffee Bars


I made these bars for the first time last week
and they are verrrrry yummy.

They were great the first day and just as good several days later.

I got the recipe from this blog.


Almond Toffee Bars

1 1/2 c flour
1/2 c powdered sugar
6 oz sliced almonds
1 c cold butter
1 can sweetened condensed milk
8 oz package of chocolate toffee bits
1 egg
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine flour, sugar, and 1/4 c of the almonds
in a food processor.  Mix to combine.
Cut butter into chunks and add to processor.
Mix to cut butter into the flour mixture until it
resembles coarse crumbs.

Grease a 9 x 13" pan.

Press crust mixture into bottom of pan.
Bake for 15 minutes.

In a small bowl mix together the can of milk,
toffee bits, egg and vanilla.  Pour over hot crust.
Top with remaining almonds and bake 27-30 minutes
until golden brown.

Cool completely before cutting into squares.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi Susa, You wanted to see my little kitchen, so I've done a post especially for you and Gloria to go and have a look around it. Don't break anything while you're in there.

  3. I didn't realise you had started blogging again, Keith. I'm glad you have. I love your kitchen - absolutely perfect. Great floor, wonderful shade of blue on your cupboards, your own stained glass - lovely. I covet your French dresser - what talents you have. You have to be kidding - I don't think it looks crude at all. I want one! Fun to see Betsy's calendar on another wall. And the cup is la pièce de résistance. How amazing to have such a large window – you look like you live in the treetops – beautiful. Thank you so much for the tour! *Backing out carefully so I don't break anything*

    1. I'm just off to bed. As I was closing down I saw your reply. I live on the side of a steep hill and look out over the woods and fields for over 15 miles! The previous occupants had that big picture window put in, and I'm glad they did.

    2. I do indeed - it looks so welcoming. And I can't get over the French dresser... and that view! I made a funny error in my comments to him on his blog. I said "I love our kitchen" instead of "your." Ha! Keith will think I am moving in with him! :-D

    4. I seem to recall that name last week, yes! But you are a babe, so it fits! :)
      And I love the looks of your berry combo pies. I think that's called a Bumbleberry Pie!
      No rush...I won't be making mine until the weekend I don't think.

    1. Today I'm cooking for tomorrow...(auction day and T/L come for dinner) but I do have on my to do list for next month to get some meals in the freezer to have during the remodel. Not sure I'll have a working oven during that time, so anything that can just be thawed and heated in the microwave will be wonderful!

      I'll pass along the birthday wishes! :) Gee, we're all getting old, aren't we?
