Are you tired of toffee posts yet?? I’ve been on a major toffee kick the last few months. Lucky for you guys, my last bag is about half way gone and then I’ll call it quits for a bit. Promise.
Similar to the Andes Cookies, I turned to the back of one of my favorite add-ins for a new recipe to try out. I was a little timid to make the brownies. You see, I found this other recipe a while ago and it’s been my go-to ever since. I’ve made it time and time again and it’s never failed me. I was also didn’t want to waste 1 1/3 cups of buttery, toffee bits in a dud recipe. Wasted they were not! The brownie itself was dense and fudgy. Top it with a nice layer of toffee bits and I brought home an empty pan. Trust me when I tell you, no brownie square will go undressed. There is plenty to cover each and every one. Did the recipe beat out my go-to? Not sure about that, but this one is pretty good as well.
All American Heath Brownies
Recipe from the back of Heath Bits bag
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 1/2 oz Unsweetened Chocolate, roughly chopped
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 1/3 cup (8 oz pkg) Heath Toffee Bits
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8×8 inch baking pan. Set aside.
2. In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
3. Melt butter and chocolate in a medium size saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let chocolate burn. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in sugar until a coarse sand forms.
4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in vanilla.
5. Add flour to chocolate mixture, stirring until well blended. Pour into prepared pan and spread evenly.
6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until brownie begins to pull away from the edge of pan. Remove from oven, sprinkle with toffee bits, and cover tightly with foil. Place on a wire rack to cool completely. Remove foil, cut into squares.
- Brownies are best the day they are baked. I thought the toffee got a little soft the next day.
- Mini chocolate chips would be good mixed into the brownie batter.
