I love to cook but I’ll admit that baking is not really my favourite activity in the kitchen. But I do enjoy making stuff with the kids and especially around this time of year, so I am always on the hunt for simple, but delicious holiday recipes that I can use for entertaining or as hostess gifts. Chocolate bark has always been a favourite, so this year, when I kept coming across a recipe from Chipits (no, this is not an ad. I just kept seeing the ads everywhere), I had to try it. I brought it into the office and it was a big hit and I served it at a dinner party with ice cream and fresh raspberries where it was also very well received.
Here is the recipe (courtesy of Hershey Canada Inc):
Toffee Bits Triangles
Makes 60 triangles
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg yolk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ¼ cups CHIPITS® SKOR Toffee Bits, divided
2 cups CHIPITS® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Prep and Cook
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla until creamy.
Stir in flour and 1 cup (250 mL) of the toffee bits. Press into ungreased 15 ½ x 10 ½ inch (39 x 27 cm) jelly roll pan.
Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light brown. Immediately sprinkle semi-sweet chocolate chips over top. Let stand until softened, about 5 minutes; spread evenly over top. Sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Let cool completely. Cut into 3-inch squares; cut each square diagonally into 4 triangles.
