All you need are six simple ingredients to make this recipe. It’s incredibly affordable, and a great way to make a delicious family treat without spending a bunch of money.

Ingredient List

  • Hershey Bars
  • Brown Sugar
  • All-Purpose Flour
  • Egg Yolks
  • Butter
  • Vanilla Extract

Hershey Bars: Standard sized, regular Hershey bars are perfect for topping our toffee bars. I usually use six full size bars, but you can use more or less depending on how much chocolate you like.

Brown Sugar: I prefer dark brown sugar, but light works wonderfully. Dark has a more pronounced molasses flavor, which is a traditional flavor note of English toffee.

Eggs: Separate two large eggs. All we need are the yolks for this recipe.

Vanilla Extract: This adds depth to our flavor. I’ve found that almond extract also works well with this recipe if you’re looking for a change of pace.
