Let me first explain the reason for the title of my cooking blogs: Microwave junkie learns to cook. I've never been much of a cook and am usually perfectly happy eating frozen food and cereal for every meal. The other half of of "Team T" does the cooking in our household and I clean up the messes. But I am trying to help out more and at least find good recipes for us to try (even if I need some help with the actual cooking). In my attempts to be more of a housewife, I'll try to cook a little more and blog about them here.

And now to the yummy reason I posted this...

No one loves dessert more than me! A coworker brought some of these cookie bars into work today and they were to-die-for! You have to try them!

Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

  • 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Chocolate Chips or HERSHEY'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, divided
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts
  • 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
