Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 34 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 34 cup butter, softened
  • 34 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 12 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 (1 1/2 ounce) chocolate-covered english toffee bars, chopped (1 cup)

  • 12 cup semisweet chocolate morsel
  • Topping
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate morsel

  2. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable cooking spray.
  3. Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  4. Beat together butter and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
