Terrific Toffee Bars

This recipe comes from yea ole faithful cookbook, Better Homes & Gardens.

Terrific Toffee Bars

1/2 c. butter
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 c. flour
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 c. choc. chips
1/3 c. chopped nuts (I've used both walnuts and almonds with good results)
1/2 c. chocolate covered toffee pieces (I've never had these, thus never tried them!)

In large bowl beat butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth (easiest with electric mixer). Beat flour and salt until combined. Spread evenly in an ungreased 13X9X2 inch baking pan. Bake in a 350* oven for about 15 minutes or until edges are slightly brown and surface is dry. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate. Let stand about 2 minutes until softened, then spread evenly. Sprinkle with nuts (and toffee pieces if you want). Cut immediately into serving sized bars. Cool on a rack.

I tried this recipe last year and make it for almost all our company because its easy and looks/tastes like I spent more time on it than I did!
