Ingredients
For the cookie crust:
  • ¾ c. butter (1½ sticks of butter)
  • ¾ c. brown sugar
  • 1½ c. flour
For the caramel layer:
  • 10 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 T. butter
  • 1 t. salt
For the topping:
  • 2 c. chocolate chips
  • 1 c. toffee bits
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl cream the butter and brown sugar until smooth. Add in the flour and mix well.
  3. Press the cookie crust into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cookie begins to brown. Remove from the oven.
  4. Meanwhile, pour the sweetened condensed milk and butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Heat for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in the salt.
  5. Pour the milk mixture over top of the baked cookie crust and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the layer is set.

  7. Remove from oven and smooth the melted chocolate chips over top of the cookie bars. Sprinkle with toffee bits.
  8. Allow the cookies to cool completely on a wire rack. If the chocolate isn't hardening, refrigerate for 10 minutes.
  9. Cut into bars and serve.
