Today’s recipe must have been my reward for cleaning out the refrigerator, because that’s how I found it. It was on the back of a partially used bag of Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits, which I bought a while ago for some reason. I didn’t think twice about making these because it seemed like a new recipe and I was in the mood for brownies.
These brownies have less butter and chocolate than some others, and in my opinion they didn’t seem as rich. However, the slightly cakey base was a nice contrast with the big pile of Heath Bits on top, and the brownies would have been really good with ice cream. These would be perfect for anyone who prefers a cakier brownie and loves toffee bits.
