Almond Toffee Bar Recipe | Barbara Bakes (1)

A crumbly, shortbread cookie crust is topped with a sweet,gooey, chocolate, toffee and almond topping. This chewy bar cookie comes together in almost no time, perfect if you’re looking for something quick and deliciousto make for the holidays.

I saw this recipe onCrazy for Crustand Dorothy raved about how much she loves this bar and makes it over and over again. Idecided it would be the perfect finale to my 12 weeks of Christmas cookies.

The recipe originally came fromLand O’ Lakes. I changed it up a bit and decided to make the crust in the food processor, so it came together even more quickly.

This is another recipe that I loved watching bake in the oven. The topping changes from a milky color as the chocolate and toffee melt and get bubbly to a rich amber/chocolate color.

I packed up my cookie boxes with this year’s12 Weeks of Christmas cookies that I’d been diligently saving in the freezer and gave them away over the weekend to friends and family.

My family’s favorite cookies this year were the Lemon Bar Cookie Cups, the Chewy Caramel Stuffed Sugar Cookies, the Fudge-Filled Toffee Pecan Sandies, and the Chocolate Fudge Butterfinger Cookies, but there wasn’t one that we didn’t like.

Wishing you all happy holidays with lots of delicious, homemade cookies!

    LOVE your boxes, where did you get them?


    • Barbara Schieving

      Thanks Erin – it’s been several years since I bought them, but I think I found them at a craft store.


  2. CuteEverything

    Thanks for the recipe! I have a big box of toffee bits and I have been trying to figure out what to do with them, this looks perfect. I’ve made toffee bars with melted chocolate and nuts on top, but this idea is great!

    You are so good at stashing those cookies away. They all sound so good but I’m partial to this chocolate and toffee bar. I’m starting to find my mojo. I’ve made stuff, just never seem to get to the picture stage.


  4. Deborah

    These sound like the perfect Christmas cookie!


  5. Donna

    Who wouldn’t love a box full of this???

    mm…toffee and almond..that’s the killer combination.


  11. Sandy @Southwestgirl

    I can never decide which of my favorites to eat… you solved it.
    Cookie and toffee together! Does that mean I only get one?


  12. JG

    What a wonderful gift for your family & friends! One of my fondest childhood memories is the annual box of decorated Christmas Cookies from a family friend. We enjoyed every crumb! 🙂


  13. Linda

    Barbara, your friends and family are lucky! I love the boxes; they look like they are from a bakery (and I guess they are!)


  14. Jamie

    Delicious and so perfect to snack on this time of year while decorating, wrapping gifts, etc. And I couldn’t leave a comment on your gorgeous raspberry-cream cheese braid from the other day but wow was it stunning! Your house must smell extra special around the holidays! Oooh and first Xmas as a grandma?!!! xo
