Easy Toffee Pecan Bars

I made these the other night for my family and they were a huge hit, so I thought I'd share the recipe. Rich and gooey and delicious and (more importantly) easy, they are a perfect surprise dessert for a fall evening.
First, mix the three ingredients above. (Melt a stick of the salted butter in your microwave.) Do not substitute margarine for this recipe. I don't know why but it said not to so I took their word for it.

Your mixture will look like this when you're done.

Then press that mixture evenly into a greased 9X13 pan.

Now mix these ingredients (specific measurements are in recipe below)

Your mixture will look like this when you're done.

Spread the mixture on top of the first layer you made and put it in the oven.

The bars look like this when they're done.

And your kids will look like this when they devour the yummy goodness.
For bottom layer:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick salted butter, melted
1 egg
Mix all together and press into greased 9X13 pan.
For top layer:
1 bag Heath bar bits
2 cups chopped pecans
1 egg
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 Tbsp vanilla
Mix all together and pour over bottom layer. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes. Center will not look done but cooking will continue during cooling process.

Pin It!
