Easy Salted Toffee Bars

I'm sure that we have all tried at least one version of this ubiquitous sweet. This chocolate-topped, hot syrup-over-crackers confection seems to turn up everywhere. But if you haven’t tried my version, using unsalted butter with a dusting of Fleur de Sel, then you haven’t really tasted this at its finest. These are sweet, no doubt about it, you don’t pour bubbling hot sugar syrup over a bed of graham crackers, top it with melted chocolate, and end up with something other than super sweet. But the Fleur de Sel cuts back on that sweetness, brings out the taste, with a hint of salty, that makes these so much more sophisticated than all of the other versions. They’re easy to put together, always a crowd-pleaser, and can be whipped up in well under an hour, including chilling time. Give my version a try.
Easy Salted Toffee Bars

1 package graham crackers
2-1/2 cups chocolate chips*
1 cup unsalted butter
cup light brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 teaspoon Fleur de Sel

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a 9” x 13'' pan with foil and spray with PAM.

Place graham crackers, side by side, along the bottom of the pan, breaking and fitting where necessary. Set aside.

In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. When butter is melted, stir in brown sugar and pecans, and continue to stir, bringing mixture to a low boil. Boil for five minutes, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat; pour over graham crackers, and spread to cover. Bake in preheated oven for seven minutes.

Remove bars from the oven and sprinkle the top with chocolate chips. Return to oven for 1 to 2 minutes until chips become shiny, remove from oven and spread to the edges with an
offset spatula. Sprinkle the top with Fleur de Sel. Place into the refrigerator until firm enough to cut.

*You can use semi-sweet morsels, milk chocolate morsels, bittersweet morsels, or any combination of the three.

Another fabulous sweet recipe is this blog favorite, Twix Truffle Brownies. Try to stop eating them!
