Betcha Can’t Eat Just One

Betcha can’t eat just one is a line I remember from a Lay’s ad, either for potato chips or Fritos.  

toffee barsIt also applies to these toffee bars, easy to make and oh so good.  I first tasted them after a tennis match some years ago and immediately got the recipe from the gal who introduced me to what has become one of my all time favorite sweets.  Whether or not I should be grateful to her is another story!

Toffee Bars

Line a rimmed baking pan with aluminum foil and cover the foil with a layer of graham crackers.  Melt one cup of butter with a cup of brown sugar over medium heat and cook for 3 minutes or until sugar is well dissolved.  Pour the hot mixture over the graham crackers and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes.  As soon as the crackers come out of the oven, spread a 12 oz. bag of dark chocolate chips over the surface and top with chopped almonds, pecans or walnuts. When they have cooled completely, break into squares.

toffee bars To speed the cooling process, you may want to put the toffee in the refrigerator.  This allows the chocolate to harden a bit which makes it easier to break it into pieces.

As soon as it is ready, pour yourself a big glass of milk or a cup of coffee and eat to your heart’s content.  Try hard as you might, I bet you can’t stop at just one!

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

    OMG, I’ll never get back into that (name the item of clothing) now that I have this recipe!

    1. Before you eat them, be sure to put on something with an elastic waistband!

  4. YUM – and for those who have allergies to some nuts (husbands not included!!!!) soy nuts work great!! Thanks, Linda, for another GREAT recipe!!! Hugs, Carol

  5. Thank you Lulu, these look amazing and perfectly dangerous!

  6. I can remember the Lay’s ad, and– being the kid that I was at the time, trying (but failing) to eat just one chip.

  7. Goodness… That sound so delicious… I’m trying to decide on a dessert for Easter and this one sounds pretty good…

    1. I don’t know whether the toffee bars would qualify as a fancy dessert, but they are good to put out for guests to pick up and munch on. There won’t be any left for sure.

  8. Linda, these look so delicious!! I could never eat just one of those lays potato chips and I am sure I would not stop at one of these either!! I might have to make several pans using different nuts in each! Linda

  9. Oh Linda, I want to dive right into the picture and grab one of those toffee bars. I’ve seen them made with saltines, but the graham cracker version sounds better to me. I must make these soon!!

    1. So long as you control the amount you eat when they are first ready, you’ll not be sorry!

  10. I’ll only make them when I have help to eat them. Thanks for the fair warning!

  11. I bet I couldn’t eat just one, either! Yummy.

  12. Linda, a former neighbor of mine used to make this every Christmas. Yours looks delicious – just like hers. No, I never could stop at one! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’m not sure I have hers. I’m salivating! 🙂

  13. Oooooooooooooooh, to die for…

  14. Oh my goodness…this looks sooooo yummy!!!

  15. I WILL make these and soon!

    1. You won’t be sorry, but you might hate yourself for eating so many.

  16. DIVINE………….Simply DIVINE………….I shall make these!

    1. And I’m betting you will like them as much as I do. I just wish they weren’t so addictive.

      1. Having a big party this Thursday …… These are on the menu!

  17. They look positively lethal. Delicious, no doubt.

  18. I am SURE I could eat the whole pan. Wow, this sounds so good.

    1. I won’t embarrass myself by telling you how many I’ve eating at one time. I can’t help it!!

  19. Why would anyone want to stop at one? Looks tremendously decadent!
