These Chocolate Toffee Bars are so rich and full of flavor. The sweetened condensed milk cooks into the toffee and creates an irresistible caramel goodness.
Why You’ll Love Chocolate Toffee Bars
Chocolate Toffee Bars are the result of a trinity of sweetness — English Toffee bits, chocolate chips, and sweetened condensed milk — resting on top of a simple crust. They are gooey pieces of dessert perfection!
These toffee bars might feel a bit holiday-ish, but trust me when I say they will go over very well whenever they’re served. Chocolate and toffee are appreciated year-round! They’ll be gobbled up off dessert platters no matter if they’re served in January or June (or December or April or… you get the point).
I admit these bars do make me a bit nostalgic for the holidays because English Toffee is a huge holiday staple in our family. My aunt always arrives with a large platter of English Toffee to holiday gatherings and she’s pretty much ambushed at the door by toffee fanatics! On her way to the kitchen, the platter is largely emptied.
Needless to say, it’s no surprise that I love these Chocolate Toffee Bars. My beloved English Toffee accented by chocolate, condensed milk, and a tasty crust? It doesn’t get much better than that.

- English Toffee: This is also my aunt’s original recipe, using almonds instead of pumpkin seeds. Try both kinds and see which one you like best! I love modifying her recipe by using different nuts and seeds.
