Cooking and Entertaining: Crème Brulee Cookie Bars

The creme brûlée bars are to-die-for!


I usually try to avoid posting recipes that I find on cooking blogs, but this recipe is so amazing that I wanted to share it. These treats are so good that I’ve made them twice in the last month, once for Kevin’s coworkers and once for our son. It’s a sweet, dense cookie bar, topped with toffee bits and tastes just as one would imagine if crème brulee were a cookie.

Even though the original recipe explicitly states not to overbake them, I baked these bars longer than suggested (30 minutes before adding the toffee bits and then an additional 10 minutes) because I’m not a fan of even slightly underbaked cookies. I also substituted vanilla bean paste for vanilla extract to get a stronger flavor. Whether you use my hacks or the original recipe, you’ll fall in love with these unique bars.

 
the ingredients

melt the butter and chocolate on the stove

When Martha Stewart was on the Dr.Oz show baking brownies,
she used clips to hold the parchment paper in place. I borrowed
her idea here.

Add the toffee bits then bake for 10 more minutes

Look how the toffee bits melted!
