Peanut Butter Topped Toffee Bars
This is one of the top 10 requested recipes from Domino Sugar. They look pretty good. I'm going to try the recipe today. If you try it out, let me know how you like them!
2 cups - butter, softened
2 cups - Domino Light Brown Sugar, firmly packed
1 - egg
1 tbsp. - vanilla extract
4 cups - all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. - salt
2 cups - chopped pecans
2 1/2 cups - semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 1 1/2 - 12 oz packages)
1/2 cup - peanut butter chips
1 tsp. - vegetable shortening
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and arrange rack to the center position. Beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Blend in vanilla. Whisk flour with salt and gradually stir into batter. Fold in pecans and spread mixture in a lightly greased 15 x 11 x 2 inch baking pan.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until lightly golden on edges. Remove from oven and immediately top evenly with chocolate chips. Allow chips to stand 2-3 minutes to soften, then spread and swirl evenly over top of toffee with the back of a large spoon. Set aside.
Melt peanut butter chips with vegetable shortening and stir to blend smoothly. Drizzle randomly over the top of chocolate. Cool thoroughly, then cut into squares.
