The Rosiethon. Day 7. Toffee Almond Bars.

Toffee Almond Bars

Toffee Almond Bars

2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 8 oz. package of Bits of Brickle
3\4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sliced amonds
3/4 cup coconut

Heat oven to 350°.
Beat butter and sugar until fluffy.  Gradually add flour, beating until well-blended.  Press dough evenly in prepared pan.
Bake 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
Meanwhile, combine toffee bits and corn syrup in small saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Cook until bits are melted, about 10 minutes.
Stir in 1/2 cup almonds and 1/2 cup coconut.
Bake an additional 15 minutes. 
Sprinkle remaining almonds and coconut over top.
Cool in pan, then cut into bars or squares.

Now, people, I have to take issue with this, as I do every Christmas when I buy this stuff.
Bits 'O Brickle is all sorts of wrong.
It's either Bits OF Brickle or Bits O' Brickle.
Wish the Hershey's company would address this.
But then, my local Food Lion didn't care enough to change the sign I pointed out to them in the produce department.  "TurnUps."
