Submitted by: rileysmom on July 27, 2010

A great toffee crunch in rich cookie bars that get a head start from refrigerated cookie dough. (Recipe from Pillsbury.)

Servings: 32 bars   Prep Time: 20 Min   Cook Time: 25 minutes Cool time: 2 hours  

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (32 squares)
1 bag (8 oz)  toffee bits (1 1/2 cups)
1 roll (16.5 oz) refrigerated chocolate chip cookies
1 bag (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate baking chips (2 cups)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla


Directions

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray.


2. In medium bowl, stir 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 1/2 cups of the cracker crumbs and 3/4 cup of the toffee bits. Press mixture evenly in bottom of pan. Refrigerate about 15 minutes or until firm.

3. Meanwhile, let cookie dough stand at room temperature 10 minutes to soften. In 2-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips, milk and 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat, stirring frequently, until chips are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla. Spread mixture over cracker crust.

4. In medium bowl, break up cookie dough. Mix in remaining 1/2 cup cracker crumbs with wooden spoon until well blended. Crumble mixture evenly over chocolate layer. Sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup toffee bits.

5. Bake 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 2 hours. For a firmer bar, refrigerate 30 minutes longer. For bars, cut into 8 rows by 4 rows.
