Toffee Brownies {4-Ingredients}

Have you ever had a brownie craving, but missing ingredients to make them and only cake mix on hand instead of brownie mix?  I think you’re going to love this recipe from Kim.  She uses a cake mix to make some deeply chocolate brownies that are studded with Heath toffee bits!

I love Heath candy bars and I love brownies, so it was only natural that I put the two together! Since I also adore quick and easy recipes, this dessert only requires 4 ingredients.

Toffee Brownie Ingredients EAH

If you are not a fan of toffee, you can easily substitute your favorite candy or chocolate chips. I’ve made these with mini peanut butter cups, Rolo candies, chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips! What can I say, they are so easy to whip up, and there are so many possibilities!

Toffee Brownies EAHThey may not be the most photogenic dessert, but disappear quickly every time I make them! Also, this recipe contains no eggs, so it’s great for anyone with an egg allergy or who doesn’t eat eggs, and with so few ingredients it’s a great “first” recipe for kids. My children enjoy getting in the kitchen and baking up goodies, and this is the perfect rainy day activity (with the added bonus of getting my chocolate fix!)

4 Ingredient Toffee Brownies EAH

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease/spray a 9 x 13 baking dish. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine milk and pudding mix. Whisk together until pudding begins to thicken.
  4. Add dry cake mix. Stir until combined.
  5. Spread batter into prepared baking dish.
  6. Top with toffee bits.
  7. Bake for 25-30 minutes.

*Note: I have vanilla pudding pictured with the ingredients, and chocolate pudding listed in the recipe. I usually use chocolate pudding, but you can substitute different flavors. You can also add additional chocolate chips or toffee bits to the batter if desired. You really can’t have too much chocolate in my opinion!

Coffee Toffee Ice Cream Pie with a Ribbon of Fudge

As far as I’m concerned, coffee ice cream with hot fudge is the best dessert in the world.  It’s my favorite of favorites.

So when I was asked to try Häagen-Dazs® and I got to choose my own flavor, I jumped at the chance.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love ice cream?

Of course, I chose coffee ice cream.  I thought about posting a photo of a big bowl of Häagen-Dazs® with hot fudge, because that is how I like to eat it best.  But, then a friend told me about a pie she once had.  The pie had coffee ice cream, rich fudge, toffee pieces and a chocolate crust.  Holy ice cream scoops!

This pie is impressive, perfect for serving to company.  It’s no-bake, easy to assemble and you can make it ahead of time because it gets kept in the freezer until you’re ready to eat.

Butter Pecan Crunch Cake

I’ve had a Butter Pecan cake mix in my pantry for a while now, just waiting for the perfect inspiration.  I originally thought to make a bar cookie with it, but decided a snack cake/coffee cake type dessert sounded better.

I need to do a bit more testing on this recipe.  The crumb topping needs more butter and I’d like to work on the cake batter a bit too.  But, this tasted wonderful, so it’s worth testing.  The cake has a sweet, nutty flavor and is topped with buttery crumbs that also have a bit of crunch from the nuts and toffee chips.

Apple Pecan Toffee Bars

These bars reward patience.  Not because they take a long time to make, but because they taste so much better when they’re completely cooled.   They’re delicious warm too, but the spiced apple flavor is more pronounced when cool.

The inspiration for the bars is a jar of Smucker’s Apple Cinnamon Topping.

Chocolate Chip Toffee Chip Cookies

I love my husband.  First of all, he sometimes bakes cookies for us.  Secondly, he has brilliant ideas.  Like pouring Heath chips into the cookie dough.

Toffee chips make a classic even better.

Butter Toffee Cookies

This is another recipe from Recipe Girl’s cookie list.  Hers are Sparkling Butter Toffee Cookies.  Mine didn’t come out sparkly, but they are good.  I thought these would be a soft cookie, which is what I prefer, but they are a bit crisp.  They would be a great choice if you need to mail them.

I did double the recipe and added the whole bag of toffee chips, rather than just 1 cup.

Way to a Man’s Heart Cookies

These just might be the best cookies I’ve ever made, especially when they are warm out of the oven.  Used wisely, they just might get you whatever you want 😉  They are a delicious adaptation of a cookie called My Man’s Cookies from the Vanguards Cookbook my sister-in-law gave me.
