Assembly Directions:
For the crust, mix together the flour and confectioners sugar in a medium-sized mixing bowl. Cut in the chilled butter, using a pastry blender or a fork, until crumbly. Press mixture evenly in the bottom of an un-greased 9”x13” pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium mixing bowl, beat together the sweetened condensed milk, egg and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the pecans and the toffee chips. Spread over hot crust. Bake at 350 degrees for an additional 25 minutes. Cool overnight and then cut into bars.

Freezing Directions:
Put bars into a freezer bag or rigid container, separating layers with waxed paper. Seal, label and freeze.

Serving Directions:
Remove from freezer and allow to thaw in the refrigerator. Serve chilled or at room temperature.

Rhea’s Comments:
Toffee chips are usually located in the baking aisle with the chocolate chips. I usually use only about half a bag of toffee chips because the full bag makes them too sweet for me. Once the bag is open, the chips do have a tendency to clump. Just whack the bag a couple of times and the chips will separate again.

Tammy’s Comments:
These bars are so quick to put together… 10 minutes, plus baking time. You can cut and eat them when they’ve cooled, but my tasters agreed they liked them better the next day, and chilled in the refrigerator too. They weren’t too sweet for us when I used the whole bag of toffee chips, so you’ll have to decide that one for yourself! I might even add a handful of mini-chocolate chips the next time I make them!
