English Toffee Bars

English Toffee Bars are English Toffee in a bar form—caramel, chocolate, nuts–when they’re warm from the oven you just can’t beat them!

There are layers of a yummy, butter-y crust, chocolate chips, toffee bits, and sweetened condensed milk to hold them together. I can’t take them anywhere without getting asked for the recipe, and I’m just telling you up front, they are TOTALLY addictive.  ☺ They’re perfect on goodie plates, stacked inside treat bags, served at parties, or just to enjoy at home.

As a sidenote, the nuts are optional. If there are nut allergies in your home, or you’re concerned about them, they’re still amazingly good without the nuts! I’ve made them several times like that, with fabulous results!

Make sure you follow the step to let them cool completely before cutting–they need to set before you can cut them successfully.  Or, you can just grab a spoon and start eating them warm. Not that I would know anything about that.  ☺ In all seriousness, you can scoop them out with a spoon when warm, and then add a dollop of whip cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  1. Are you kidding me? *swoon*
    Gah, all these recipes are going to do in my resolve to maintain my weight through the New Year. I love English Toffee!. I’ll be making these for sure!

  2. I am excited to try these but wonder how almonds would taste instead of pecans or walnuts.

    1. You’ll have to try it and let me know! I don’t think you can go wrong–I’ve made it with pecans, walnuts, and without any nuts, and all have been fabulous! xo

  3. So I tried it with almonds and loved it. I agree it probably would turn out good without nuts too but what a great combo with the almonds. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe!

    1. Yay!!! So glad you loved them!! I’ve never tried them with almonds–it looks like I need to! xo
