Chocolate Walnut Toffee Bars or "Scrat" would go crazy for it...

The ones who have seen Ice Age bevor know what I´m taking about.
Scrat is a saber-toothed squirrel who is obsessed with collecting acorns, and all kind of nuts, constantly putting his life in danger to obtain and defend them.
So watch out, Scrat could be around, because these Chocolate Walnut Toffee Bars are full of delicious nuts.
It´s an easy recipe, but so good.

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a bowl beat butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until you have a creamy batter.
Stir in flour, salt and 1/2 cup walnuts.
Spread into a lightly buttered 13x9-inch pan.
Bake for 25 minutes or until it´s lightly browned.
Take the dough out of the oven and sprinkle it immediately with chocolate pieces and let it stand for 5 minutes.
Now spread the melted chocolate over cookie base.
Sprikle with the remaining walnuts and press on lightly.
Cool, and cut into bars.

Makes 24 bars.


  1. Scrat. I love him to bits. I would often replay that intro part where he appears!! Please send these bars to me, I would like to set it out as a trap for Scrat. (and have the rest all to myself, of course)

  2. I think I just caught him with some cake pops:-)
