Ingredients

  • 1
    pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2
    cup butter, softened
  • 1
    egg
  • 1
    cup toffee bits

  • 1/3
    cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2
    cups semisweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 3/4
    teaspoon coarse sea salt

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch cookie sheet with sides with foil. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in 1/2 cup of the toffee bits. Press dough in bottom of pan. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on cooling rack.

    In 2-quart saucepan, heat caramels and cream over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until caramels are melted, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Spread over warm cookie base. Bake 5 minutes. Return to cooling rack. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top. Let stand 3 minutes; spread melted chips evenly over filling. Sprinkle with sea salt and remaining 1/2 cup toffee bits. Refrigerate bars until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes. Cut into 8 rows by 4 rows. Store at room temperature in airtight container.

  • If using 21-oz pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix, use 1/2 cup butter, softened, 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water. No change to cookie sheet size. Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown. Makes 32 bars.
  • Jazz up your cookie tray by cutting bars into different shapes -- triangles, diamonds or tiny squares.
  • Toffee bits are in the baking aisle of your grocery store. They are sold in bags just like chocolate chips.
