These English Toffee Bars are hands down my favorite bar recipe EVER, and my go-to dessert that everyone loves! If you’re looking for a yummy addition to your Christmas dessert list, then look no further…these are it! English Toffee is my favorite Christmas candy, and these are it in a bar form—caramel, chocolate, nuts–when they’re warm from the oven you just can’t beat them!
There are layers of a yummy, butter-y crust, chocolate chips, toffee bits, and sweetened condensed milk to hold them together. I can’t take them anywhere without getting asked for the recipe, and I’m just telling you up front, they are TOTALLY addictive. ☺ They’re perfect on goodie plates, stacked inside treat bags, served at parties, or just to enjoy at home.
As a sidenote, the nuts are optional. If there are nut allergies in your home, or you’re concerned about them, they’re still amazingly good without the nuts! I’ve made them several times like that, with fabulous results!
Make sure you follow the step to let them cool completely before cutting–they need to set before you can cut them successfully. Or, you can just grab a spoon and start eating them warm. Not that I would know anything about that. ☺ In all seriousness, you can scoop them out with a spoon when warm, and then add a dollop of whip cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream.
