chocolate-chip-toffee-barsThinking of a winter break in sunny California? If you visit Palm Springs, you may get a chance to enjoy these chocolate-rich bars at the Rendezvous Bed and Breakfast. If a trip like that is out of the question, make them at home — it’s easy, and you get all the taste and freshness of baking from scratch. Word to the wise: Remember to set aside a cup of the flour and butter mixture before you add the wet ingredients to the rest of it.  And ask some friends over to help  you eat the bars — these things are rich.


Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars


  1. 2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  2. 2 cups all purpose flour
  3. 1/2 cup (one stick) butter or margarine, softened
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  7. 1 cup milk
  8. 1 egg
  9. 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  10. 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the brown sugar and the flour; using a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Remove 1 cup of this mixture and set aside.
  3. To mixture in large bowl, add the baking powder and salt. Using a fork, lightly beat in vanilla, milk and egg. Continue beating until smooth. Pour batter into a 13×9 greased pan.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the chocolate chips and walnuts.
  5. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over top of batter in pan. Sprinkle with the chocolate chips and the walnuts. Using a long flat spatula, spread topping evenly over the top of the batter in pan.
  6. Bake bars for 35 -45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in center comes out clean. Cool bars completely before slicing. Cut into bars, should make about 24.
