 This recipe is actually from 'Eagle Brand Condensed Milk'- but I found it through a friend who found it on 'The Sister's Cafe'.  Maybe I've posted about it before- but it needs posting again because it is one of my favorite treats of all time and it's pretty easy to make. Plus- besides the toffee chips- everything else is something I usually have around the house.

They are to DIE for delicious. Pretty rich- and best when cooled a bit- but make sure you aren't home alone when you make them.  They are amazing.  Pictures don't really do the treat justice- so you'll have to trust me and just try them out.
(picture from mel's kitchen cafe)
2 1/3 c. flour
2/3 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 (12 oz.) pkg. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped nuts - I used pecans, but walnuts or macadamias would be great, too. (or NO nuts)
14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
10 oz. Skor toffee bits  (I used only about 4-6 oz and I'm glad!)

Stir together flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and mix well. Stir in 1 1/2 c. chocolate chips and all of nuts. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of this mixture and press remaining into a greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake for 10 minutes at 350. Pour milk over hot crust and top with 1 1/2 cups toffee bits. Sprinkle remaining crumbs over top plus remaining chips. Bake 25-30 more minutes. Top with remaining toffee bits.

Thanks for the recipes, Leisy! I printed off both of them and I am going to use the this week (or next depending on when I get to the store). I LOVE to try new things, esp. when someone else has already tested them out.
