Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

Anything toffee is a "yum" for me.  These bars were amazing and so simple to make.  We loved them.  We shared these with some cousins of mine and they loved them.  I took them to work and my coworkers loved them.  You make them and you will love them!

2 1/3 C flour
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 C brown sugar
3/4 C butter, softened
2 eggs
2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 C coarsely chopped nuts (optional)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 package toffee bits, divided

Preheat the oven to 350.
Line a 9"x13" pan with foil.  Lightly grease the foil with cooking spray.
Combine the flour, salt, and brown sugar.
Cut the butter into the dry mixture with a pastry cutter or a fork until it is crumbly.
Mix in the eggs until well combined (using my hands was easier than a spoon).
Add 1 1/2 C of the chocolate chips and the nuts if you are adding them in.
Set aside 1 1/2 C of the dough.
Press the rest of the dough into the bottom of the pan.
Bake it for 10 minutes.
Pour the sweetened condensed milk over the cooked dough.
Cover with 3/4 of the bag of toffee bits.
Pinch small pieces of the dough over the milk and toffee layers.
Sprinkle with the last 1/2 C of chocolate chips.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden brown.
Sprinkle the remaining toffee bits over the top.
Let it cool completely before cutting and serving.

This recipe comes from Mel's Kitchen Cafe.
