Pecan Toffee Squares

Recipe by  

"This is my great uncle's favorite dessert. I made this for his birthday(2/29) until Alzheimer's took him away from us. Every time I make this, it prompts my husband and sons to share their memories of him. Can be served warm or cold with or without Cool Whip® topping. Refrigerate leftovers."

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan. Mix sweetened condensed milk, 1 egg, pecans, toffee bits, and vanilla extract in a bowl until well blended; set aside.
  2. Cut the butter and 1 egg into the yellow cake mix in a large bowl with a knife or pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press the crumbs into the prepared pan to form a bottom layer.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until firm, about 7 minutes. Spread pecan filling over the baked bottom layer, then continue baking until the filling has set, 22 to 30 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve with whipped topping.

This dessert is in-CRE-DI-BLE! We loved every bit of it. We were on vacation in a small town and found this recipe and had to try it. The grocery did not carry toffee baking bits, so we substituted a 12 oz bag of miniture Heath bars. We crushed them in the chopper (the whole bag)and used it instead. FABulous recipe!

Very Yummy. I'm not sure about the cooking times. I cooked the crust for 11 minutes, but in the end I felt it should have been cooked longer. I will probably add more pecans next time and maybe more toffee.

5 stars because this was really yummy and SUPER easy to make. I made this for a church function on short notice with whatever I had on hand and it turned out well. I used french vanilla cake mix in place of yellow and omitted the vanilla in the filling because it was now in the crust. I also had 2/3 bag of toffee chips and 1/3 bag of chocolate coated toffee chips on hand, so I used a combination. I baked the crust for 10-11 minutes and the filling for 27 minutes. It is a tad sweet (just cut into smaller bars), but oh so ooey gooey at the same time! Will definitely make again.
