Toffee Crunch Bar: TWD


I'm a kid who likes to eat with my fingers. Ice cream sandwiches are the right size to hold without getting too sloppy. TWD baker, Whitney of What's Left on The Table selected sweet this week.



The bars are quick to make. Like most bar cookies, it starts with a shortbread base. Prep the pan, so once the bars are baked, they will easily release. Sitting on top of the shortbread layer, a film of chocolate is smoothed over. Then the best part, Heath Chocolate Toffee Bits sprinkled (and gently pressed) on top. Heathbars have been around since 1917. The perfect blend of milk chocolate and caramel and almonds. However, as much as I liked them, the bar was a bit too hard to bite into. These were filled with Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream. Any suggestions? Still pretty good.

Did you keep yours in the fridge? I only chilled them to let the chocolate set and then kept them on the counter (covered) and they were very biteable.

Mmmmm. These look amazing. I would fill and eat right away without putting the bars in the freezer.

Pry them apart, lick the ice cream from the middle.

By that time the bars have thawed a bit, and voila, not so hard.

Your ice cream sandwiches look delicious. They are hard to eat though. I had to break them apart like an Oreo and eat the two halves separately.
