Chocolate Toffee Crunch Bars

This was a new recipe and they are outstanding! I was trying to come up with a great recipe for a cookie swap I'm going to on Sunday afternoon and these would of been great except there are going to be almost 30 ladies there and I would have to make a dozen pans. I don't have the time or money so that idea went by the wayside.

Combine 2 cups graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar and 1/3 cup melted butter together. Press firmly into the bottom of an ungreased 9x13 inch pan.

Bake for 8-10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

In a saucepan, combine 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar. Cook over moderate heat, stirring constantly until the mixture comes to a boil.

Boil for 1 minute.

Pour immediately over baked cookie base. Note: Drizzle this over the top so it covers every part of the base. I dumped mine in the middle and tried to spread it which started to break apart the base, which is why it looks yucky.

Bake for 10 more minutes. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with 1 cup of semisweet chocolate chips. Let stand for 2-3 minutes.

Spread the softened chocolate gently over the top.

Let cool before cutting into bars.
