Oatmeal Toffee

I made these several times last week.  Halfway between a cookie bar and candy, they are very fast (although they take a while to cool–over an hour at room temp before they are easy to cut up) and easy and yummy.  I found the recipe several years ago in an old green cookbook by Meta Givens.

Melt 1/3 cup butter in a 4 cup pyrex (or similar) measuring cup.  Add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup honey (the original recipe calls for corn syrup).  Stir up.  Add 2 cups of rolled (original or quick) oats and 1/2 teaspoon salt and some vanilla and mix it all together.  Spread into an oiled 8″x8″ square pan and bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.  Remove & turn off oven.  Sprinkle with 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips.  Put back in oven for 2 minutes.  Take out and spread the melted chocolate evenly over the top of the toffee.  Cool completely before cutting into small squares.  🙂
