Serves: 36 bars
Ingredients
  • 8 ounces soft butter
  • 1 & ½ cups light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 & ½ cups coconut
  • 1 cup toffee bits
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the over to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet by lining the bottom with parchment
  2. paper and butter the edges of the pan. I used a 13 x 18 sheet pan, but you can use a 9 x 13 inch if you want a thicker, chewier bar.
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter briefly, then beat in the brown sugar until fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.
  5. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and soda, and the salt.
  6. Beat the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, until incorporated.
  7. Beat in the coconut, toffee bits and almonds.
  8. Spread the batter evenly in a prepared pan and bake for 20 to 25 minutes in larger pan, about 5 minutes more for the smaller one.
  9. Remove the bars from the oven, and immediately scatter the chocolate chips evenly over the top. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes, and then spread the now melted chips over the bars.
  10. Allow to cool for at least an hour to set the chocolate well.
  11. Cut into 2 inch squares. Store tightly covered - will keep well for up to a week.
