  • “I didn’t really expect these to taste like Heath Bars but they kinda do! The toffee layer is a very firm buttery toffee tasting shortbread. I did step 2 first and then beat the flour into it. I pressed it very firmly into a 15×10 cookie sheet with 1/2″ sides. I thought the 250 temperature might be too low but tried it anyways…at 15 minutes it looked barely baked and was still very soft…so I turned up the oven to 350 and baked it another 10 minutes but that was a bit too much. If baked correctly I’m sure these would be even better but they still were excellent. The chocolate layer is a bit thick and I think I’ll use almonds instead of pecans next time. Thanks for this recipe! I love toffee anything.”
