Printable Recipe

Chocolate Toffee Shortbread Bars

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
2 sticks butter at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 oz. (1/2 cup) bittersweet, semisweet, or milk chocolate

6 oz. (1 cup) bittersweet, semisweet, or milk chocolate
1 cup toffee bits or 4 Heath bars, chopped

Preheat oven to 375. Line a 9x13 pan with foil and lightly grease. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and cinnamon; set aside. Place butter in a bowl of a stand mixer. Beat 3 minutes, until smooth. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat for 3 minutes. Add vanilla and mix briefly. Add flour mixture gradually until almost incorporated. Add chocolate and mix until dry mixture is fully incorporated. Do not overmix.  Pour dough into prepared pan and press down. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle  6 oz of chocolate over crust. Cover pan with foil and let sit for 5 minutes to melt chocolate. Remove foil and spread chocolate over crust. Sprinkle toffee over chocolate and press down gently. Cool before serving. (You might need to put it in the freezer for 10 minutes to set chocolate.)
