Homemade Heath toffee bars! Identical in taste but are soft and thick instead of thin and crunchy. Made with a surprise ingredient that makes this toffee so buttery and tasty.
Welcome to Day 3 of 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS COOKIES !!
Are you in a sugar coma yet from my blog?!
I am not sure what I was thinking taking on 12 days of Christmas goodies for the blog. Luckily, my husband is an engineer for a commercial construction company and he’s on a job where there are plenty of guys who are willing to eat all my treats. And for that, I am very grateful 🙂
These Homemade Heath Toffee Bars actually never made it with my husband to work. My oldest, he’s (almost) 6, woke up yesterday morning and the first thing he asked me was “mom, you know those really delicious m&m bars you made with the chocolate… I want those today.”
I felt so bad. So, needless to say, he loved these soft and chewy toffee bars and made me promise to leave them at the house.
Think the classic thin, crispy, buttery Heath toffee candy bar.
These bars have the same sweet n’ salty & buttery toffee flavor, but they are soft and thick! They are really, really yummy and made with crushed up Ritz crackers. Only 4 ingredients and they are so simple to make.
To get the Ritz crackers into fine crumbs use a food processor, mini food chopper (I use the one shown below), or place crackers in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag and crush them.
Reserve 1/4 cup of the Heath Toffee Bits to sprinkle on top (if wanted).
- 1 box (13.7 oz) Ritz crackers, finely crushed
- 1 bag (8 oz) Heath Toffee Bits
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking dish with tin foil or parchment paper, and spray lightly with cooking spray.
- In mixing bowl, combine the finely crushed Ritz crackers, bag of Heath Toffee Bits, and can of sweetened condensed milk. Mix together. Dump into the baking dish and press the dough evenly into it.
- Bake for 8 minutes. Take out and sprinkle the 1 cup of chocolate chips over the top. Put back in oven and cook 5 more minutes.
- When done cooking, take out and using the back of a spoon smooth out the chocolate chips evenly.
- Let cool for an hour and then lift out of pan and cut into squares.
- If you want the chocolate to harden place in the fridge. These are good eaten cold or at room temperature.
Hope you have a wonderful day! Stop by tomorrow for another Christmas treat.
This mini food chopper is much cheaper than a food processor, but essentially does the same thing. I use this to get the Ritz crackers into very fine crumbs.
You will also need an 8×8 baking dish. I use a glass Pyrex. I love it because it has a lid which makes storing these toffee bars really easy.
