Hi everyone!! This is the last post in the cookie series, I know so sad! I wanted to leave on a high note, these little babies are my FAVORITE holiday cookie, but they of course can be eaten year round!

These are very simple as well! The recipe was adapted from Betty Crocker, my Mom used to (and still does!) make them every Christmas!

Chocolate Pecan Toffee Bars


  • 1 Cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 Cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 each egg yolk
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 each large chocolate bars (we use Hershey's)
  • 1/2 Cup chopped pecans optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In large bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, vanilla and egg with hand mixer. Add in flour and salt. Press dough into ungreased 13x9x2 inch pan.
  3. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until light golden brown. Dough will still be soft.
  4. Break the chocolate bar into chunks and lay evenly onto the warm dough and let melt. About 5 minutes.
  5. Spread the melted chocolate carefully with the back of a spoon or spatula evenly over surface. Sprinkle with the chopped pecans. Place pan on wire rack and let cool completely.
  6. Cut into bars when still slightly warm and enjoy!!

    This look delicious. I was looking at it with my 2 teenagers looking over my shoulder, and they both said, “Oh yea, I want some of that it looks good.” So I’m going to try it!

    Chocolate and Pecan are always a winning combo in my book! I can see why you would make them every year. I don’t think I can wait until next Christmas though!

    Your bars look so good…….just wondering the amount of chocolate you used? Got my answer the original recipe says 2/3 cups of chips.

      Yes, that’s how much the original recipes calls for but we have always used Hershey’s chocolate bars instead. I think it ends up being more chocolate than the 2/3 Cup. We use the larger bars you get at the check out counter. Thanks for stopping by!
