Sinful Toffee Squares

We all have too much “junk” to eat in our lives this time of year!   But if you want to make someone an easy, homemade, SWEET, gift– this is one of our favorites!

TOFFEE SQUARES

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
4 Chocolate Bars
1/2 cup of nuts

Cream butter, sugar, egg yolk & vanilla well.  Gradually add flour & salt mixture.  Spread dough on greased baking sheet making a 13″ x  10″ rectangle.  Leave 1″ on all sides.  Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.  Remove from oven & place chocolate bars on top.  Allow to melt and spread evenly and sprinkle with nuts.  Cut while warm.  Makes 3-4 dozen.
