The whole family will love these delicious bars made with a rich combination of toffee and chocolate. Cut them into squares or let your kids make them into fun shapes.

Ingredients

Base

2 cups 500 mL Robin Hood® Original All Purpose Flour
1 cup 250 mL brown sugar
½ cup 125 mL butter, cold
1 cup 250 mL pecans, toasted

Topping

½ cup 125 mL packed brown sugar
⅔ cup 175 mL butter
1 pkg 350 g semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Base: Preheat oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line a 9” x 13” (3 L) baking pan with parchment paper overlapping the two ends for easy removal.
  2. Tip

    Have your kids measure and cut out the parchment paper into 2 rectangles: one for the length of the pan, and the second for the width. Make sure the parchment overlaps the sides of the baking sheet. It’s easier to remove the squares if there are handles on both sides to pull it out.

  3. Mix flour, sugar and butter in large mixing bowl until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Mixture will be very dry. Press into prepared pan. Sprinkle pecans evenly over mixture.
  4. Tip

    Let your kids get right into the action and let them press the base into the pan. Make sure they pat down the corners!

  5. Topping: Melt butter and sugar in a small saucepan, stirring constantly until mixture begins to boil. Boil one minute. Pour over pecans.
  6. Bake in preheated oven 18 to 20 minutes, until topping is bubbling.
  7. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Let stand 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully spread to cover. Cool in refrigerator until chocolate sets. Cut into squares.
  8. Tip

    For a marbeled effect, let your kids sprinkle in different types of chocolate chips. Try using half white chocolate and half semi sweet or a third dark and third milk and a third white. Have your kids measure them out and do the math to figure out how many of each to use.

    Tip

    Get your kids to personalize their desserts by decorating them with coloured icing or making them into shapes using fun cookie cutters. They can even write their own names or initials!
