FUDGY TOFFEE COOKIE BARS — A graham cracker crust is topped with a later of decadent toffee fudge, then finished off with a chewy chocolate chip cookie layer for an amazing bar cookie that’s sure to become a favorite.
If you love bar cookies as much as I do, then these Fudgy Toffee Cookie Bars are a must make!
Unless you don’t like chocolate. Or cookies. Which is kind of crazy, but I know these people exist. For them, I recommend my equally amazing Sugar Cookie Bars. Actually, even if you love chocolate, you should try the Sugar Cookie Bars too.
One of my favorite things about these bars is the fact that they are so easy to make, even with the three layers. That’s the beauty of the bar cookie. It all goes into the pan at once, which saves so much time and effort.
I like to use milk chocolate chips in the top layer of these bars, to contrast with the darker chocolate fudge layer. But you can absolutely go with semi-sweet or even dark chips if you like.
Of course, what really makes these bars stand out is the additional of the toffee bits. They add a bit of crunch and a caramel-like flavor that really gives these cookie bars a unique flavor.
And I suppose it goes without saying that one of these bars is the perfect thing to go with a tall glass of cold milk. You really can’t go wrong with that as an after-school or late night snack.
Like I said, these Fudgy Toffee Cookie Bars are a must try. They’re a favorite at my house and I think they’ll be a favorite at your house too.
