Toffee and Chocolate Chip Brownie Bark

 This might possibly be the best bark ever! It’s taking my brownie obsession to a whole new level. Once you start eating it, you won’t be able to stop. So read on at your own risk!

You probably know by now that I don’t need a special day or occasion to come up with a sweet treat. But I’ve always felt like Friday nights deserve a special something something. And by special I mean a treat that takes not much effort to prepare and tastes out of this world amazing. Preferably a snackable item that puts you in just the right mood as you exhale and realize it’s weekend time!

Exactly what I’m going to give you today. Yes, there’s such a thing as brownie bark/brittle. Can you even imagine my reaction when I first discovered its existence?

I am not picky when it comes to brownies. I’m just as happy about a gooey middle piece than I am about a chewy corner. Adam on the other hand is all about the corners.

If you are anything like my hubby, you will love this bark. While there is a noticeable chewy texture throughout the entire bark, it’s also on the crunchy side, which is why it’s so addictive. Very reminiscent of thin cookies or sweet crackers, but still in a league of its own. We seriously couldn’t get enough.

It all started with one of those side ads on the internets. Yes, I clicked right on over and intensely studied everything they had to offer on their brownie brittle site. They used words like one-of-a-kind, must-try, new invention and (you probably guessed by now) completely drew me in. The only kicker was that it’s only available to order online. Which means having to pay for shipping and wait several days for it to arrive in the mail. I am not that desperate I told myself. So I quickly closed my window and thought the temptation was averted.

Until I took a trip to Costco the following day. Who knew they sold ginormous bags of it just 2 minutes away from my house?! I still wasn’t willing to give in, but knew it was only a matter of time before I would try my hand at it.

All the delicious thoughts that are entering your mind right about now are true.

Make it. Eat it. Love it!

You will want to turn on your oven for this one. I promise. It’s more than worth it and you’ll be happy you did. You could even mix things up and add anything you want. Mint chocolate, white chocolate chips, whatever floats your boat. There’s absolutely no need to pay the gourmet price for something that tastes even better made from scratch.

  17. Gretchen says:

    What size pan do you cook the bark in?

  18. this is a question not me question ur use of it but is there a reason why it uses milk powder.some scientific reason.ive never used milk powder before and wondered if it is partly the reason this bark is so lovely.
    i deff want to make this one.

    • I was actually wondering the same thing, Kate. So I did some research. Milk powder is often used in bread baking since it helps with the rising and tenderness of the loaf. I think that’s what makes this bark somewhat chewy. It also helps with carmelization and browning, which is why the bark’s surface turned out so beautifully. Hope that answers your question and that you give it a try sometime ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Seeing as how my wife won’t eat anything I cook, I’m free to experiment to my hearts desire. I love adding marmalade to my brownies as well as expresso and dates. Last nights experiment was adding rice crisppies because I like “crunch”. But it failed miserably. Any suggestions? How can I add crunch to my brownies? Should I make thinner brownies as in this recipe? Normally I use a 9″x13″ glass.

  20. Hi i tried baking this earlier but i didn’t achieve that beautiful shiny crackly surface like yoursโ€ฆ.did i do anything wrong? any tips?
    thank you for the recipe!!
