Heath Bar Brownies

Fudge Brownies with Heath Bar Topping

I modified the original Hershey recipe for these brownies. Here's my version:


1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 1-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 8 oz. bag Hershey Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom of an 8" square pan.

In a medium saucepan (or double boiler) melt butter and chocolate. Remove from heat; stir in sugar. Blend in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. Stir in flour and salt. Mix well. Spread in pan. Bake for 18-20 mins. or until brownie mixture begins to pull away from the sides of the pan. Remove from oven; sprinkle with entire bag of toffee bits. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and let cool completely in pan on a wire rack. When cool remove foil and cut into squares. Makes approx. 12.
