Almond Brittle Bar Cookies

Almond Brittle Bar Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup chopped chocolate-covered toffee bars
1 cup chopped almonds (2 ounces)
1 1/2 cup semisweet morsels

Preheat oven to: 350 degrees.

Mix together flour, baking soda, and salt.

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.

Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until just combined.

Fold in toffee bars, 1/2 cup nuts, and 1/2 cup chocolate morsels. Using a rubber spatula, spread mixture evenly in a greased 8-inch baking pan.

Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and top is lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

Immediately sprinkle remaining chocolate morsels over warm cookies. Return cookies to oven and bake until chocolate has melted, 2 minutes.

Spread melted chocolate evenly over the cookies. Sprinkle with remaining nuts. Cool and cut into bars.
