My Daughter's Toffee Bits Triangles~
Even in the pan they are good:)
Last week we went over for a little bit and she took out a tray of treats she.. her sister(Our other dd) ,and friend had baked..
These were my favorites:
Toffee Bits Triangles
1 cup (250 mL) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup (250 mL) packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon (5 mL) vanilla
1 egg yolk
2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups (220 g) CHIPITS SKOR Toffee Bits, divided
2 cups (300 g) CHIPITS Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1. Heat oven to 350°F (180°C).
2. In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla until creamy.
3. Stir in flour and 1 cup (250 mL) of the toffee bits. Press into ungreased 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 inch (39 x 27 cm) jelly roll pan.
4. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light brown. Immediately sprinkle semi-sweet chocolate chips over top. Let stand until softened, about 5 minutes; spread evenly over top. Sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Let cool completely. Cut into 3-inch (7.5 cm) squares; cut each square diagonally into 4 triangles.
Makes 60 triangles.
They had the cutest story for me.. a funny one..we all have them.. The recipe for one of the bars was in French.. their friend is English and was telling them as they went along.. measurements can be tricky..
She mistakenly said 6 cups of butter instead of 6 tbsps of butter for the nanaimo bars..:)
The girls were hysterical:)
They did correct ..but I even laughed when they told me..I could just picture H saying 6 CÀS.. was 6 cups.. she saw the C..~:)
