Toffee Squares

September 12, 2007


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.
