Chocolate Toffee Almond Squares

I got this recipe from a Robin Hood Baking Festival pamphlet. These squares are always a favorite on a cookie plate.

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
2 cups oats
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup butter
1 (300 g) pkg chocolate chips
1 cup slivered almonds
1 (225 g) SKOR toffee bits
1 1/3 cups caramel sundae sauce
½ cup flour

Method:


Crust: Combine first four ingredients in mixing bowl. Add melted butter. Mix well.
Reserve 1 ¼ cups of the mixture for topping. Press remainder into greased or parchment paper lined, 9” X 13” cake pan. Bake at 350 F for 12 min. or until light golden.
Second Layer: Combine baking chips, almonds and toffee bits. Sprinkle evenly over base.
Third Layer: Mix together sundae sauce and flour until smooth. Pour evenly over chip mixture.
Topping: Sprinkle reserved oat mixture on top.
Bake 20 – 25 min. longer, or until golden. Cool completely. Cut into 48 squares.(You will need a sharp knife – I find this the most tedious of the whole procedure, but then they are ready to quickly add to cookie platters.) These squares freeze well and keep long in the fridge as well … that is, if no one finds them.

  1. I love anything oatmeal and this is a great addition to the cookie plate at Christmas. I have a few of those Robin Hood booklets and use them often.

  9. Helsie, Skor Toffee Bits are ground up pieces of the Hershy's chocolate candy bar.I'm not sure what you could use instead ... you could omit the toffee.
