One of my favorite blogs to read is Kelly's Korner. I do not remember when or even how I stumbled across her blog...but I have been reading it for awhile now. Kelly also has a recipe blog and her most recent recipe is for these Bits O Brickle bars. I love a quick and easy dessert bar that requires just a few ingredients and this fits the bill. The baking bits this recipe calls for were on sale this today when I did my weekly grocery shopping + I had a coupon...which is a win-win for me.
So this afternoon while Madison was working on 1 of 3 school projects she has to complete before November ends and my husband is watching his beloved football...I decided to make a batch of these. I did add a slight variation to the recipe.
-1 yellow cake mix box-1/3 c. butter
-1 (14 oz.) Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
-1 c. chopped pecans
-1 tsp. vanilla
-1/2 c. Heath Bits O' Brickle or toffee chips
-1/2 c. mini chocolate chips **the original recipe doesn't call for this - but I omitted the nuts because my husband doesn't like them and added the chocolate chips
*I also just sprinkled the crust mixture with the toffee an chocolate chips. I did not measure them out.
Mix the first 3 ingredients until crumbly. Pat into a greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle the cake crust with the nuts and the chips (toffee and chocolate). Mix the egg, vanilla, and sweetened condensed milk together and pour over the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Cool and cut into squares.
These were amazing. I will definitely be making them again. Try them and let me know what you think.
