Toffee Squares


One of the great things about brownies is how quick they are to make. You don’t have to parcel them out like cookies on separate baking sheets. Just pour the batter into a baking pan, pop it into the oven, and you’re all set. For these extra-easy toffee squares, you don’t even need a mixer. And the yummy icing is nothing but melted chocolate morsels. SAM

1 cup butter, melted (2 sticks)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 (12-ounce) package chocolate morsels

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla. Add the egg yolks and stir until blended. Add the flour and oats and mix well. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes. Sprinkle immediately with chocolate morsels, spreading evenly when melted. Cool on a wire rack before cutting into 2-inch squares.
Makes 2 dozen squares.

    OMG, im drolling over the pic. Are those toffee squares that you piped? Do pass on birthday wishes to your husband.

    No, those are chocolate morsels. But piping toffee squares is a great idea. Thanks for your birthday wishes. My husband had a lovely day–and the fig-and-plum tart was delicious.

    I love almond toffee squares at Starbucks. Any idea of making this almondy other than adding extract?

    I’ve never had the almond toffee squares at Starbucks. I’ll have to try them.

    But adding almond flavor to toffee squares shouldn’t be difficult. Instead of almond extract, why not try an almond liqueur like amaretto? You could also try icing the squares with an amaretto-flavored icing. On Saturday, The ROL will post an orange liqueur icing which you could easily adapt to almond flavor. Also, I don’t know why you couldn’t trade out 1/4 cup of the oatmeal for 1/4 cup finely ground, toasted almonds. Try it and let me know how it works.
