Original recipe makes 30 bars Change Servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat butter and vegetable shortening with brown sugar, egg, vanilla extract, and maple extract until smooth; stir in flour and salt. Lightly press the dough into a 10x15-inch baking dish.
  3. Bake until the crust is set and lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
  4. Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring frequently and scraping down the sides with a rubber spatula to avoid scorching. Remove crust from oven and spread melted chocolate in a layer on top. Sprinkle with walnuts. Cut bars while still warm; let chocolate set, about 1 hour, before serving.

The first words my husband’s said after taking a bite are “these are awesome. I didn’t know chocolate would go so well with maple.” Silly man, if he was a woman he’d know chocolate goes with everything. But anyway, I followed the recipe exactly using dark chocolate chips (personal preference.) These won’t last long in this house. Thanks for sharing!

A good base recipe to which many fun flavors could be added. Tasty, but more of a chocolate shortbread than a "toffee."

Good start. Maple flavoring is a great idea! But the texture was all wrong. Adding half shortening made the bars too soft. Would have been really great to have a firm, flaky shortbread texture. All butter might be a good idea. I'll try it again that way.

These are very good, they make the house smell great too! I sell baked goods to make ends meet and these sell like hot cakes. Just have to be careful to keep an eye on the walnuts when toasting so they don't start to burn (due to different sizes in the chop).
