I bought a bag of Heath Bits ‘o Brickle Toffee Bits a while back because I love Heath Bars and figured I could find some delicious concoction to use them in. I searched the Hershey’s Kitchens website and found a recipe for these bars. Of course, I couldn’t leave well enough alone and added a 12 ounce bag of chocolate chips to the batter. You can’t have toffee without chocolate in my estimation! This created a nice ribbon of chocolaty goo in the middle of the bars. These were really good both before and after baking. I know this because I might have had a taste or two of the uncooked batter :).
