Coffee Toffee Bars

Coffee Toffee Bars

I’d been wanting to try this ever since I saw it on PW. She has a compelling, almost devilish way of drawing you in. The recipe is so incredibly simple and the list of ingredients is short, which is what I like a lot about it. Who doesn’t have pantry basics like flour and brown sugar?

 

 This isn’t just a glorified blondie. Like a cookie recipe, the fat (butter sounds better) gets creamed with the sugar first. I did this by hand. Hey, it’s a lazy Sunday. Give me a break. Kudos to me for working those forearm muscles.

While I was making this, it dawned on me that I’d run out of eggs (what?), but thankfully, the recipe does not call for them. Phew! Hurrah for shortbreads.

 

Chewy Coffee GoodnessI made changes to the original recipe. First, I subbed vanilla extract for almond. And, instead of just chocolate chips, I used white chocolate as well, for a bit of extra colour.

I’m sure this recipe can be interpreted in a myriad of ways, like adding nuts in or on top of the cookie, shredded coconut… Mmmm

I love sweets with a coffee flavour, and this hit the spot. My cousins tried it and said it reminded them of a Mrs. Field’s cookie bar, only better! Now that was a compliment.
