These toffee confections are like melt-in-your-mouth homemade candy bars. Sprinkle broken toffee candy bar or brickle bits over the top instead of nuts for a decadent touch.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup finely chopped hazelnuts, pecans, or walnuts
- Six 1 1/2-ounce milk chocolate candy bars
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter in a medium mixing bowl for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar and salt and beat until well blended. Beat in the milk and vanilla. Add the flour and beat until just blended. Stir in half of the hazelnuts, pecans or walnuts.
Spread the batter in a buttered 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. Bake until lightly browned around the edges, about 20 minutes.
Immediately place the candy bars on top of the hot crust. Let stand until the chocolate melts, about 3 minutes. Spread the chocolate evenly over the crust. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the chocolate. Cool in pan on a rack. Cut into bars.
