  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line 15x10x1-inch cookie sheet with sides with foil. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in 1/2 cup of the toffee bits. Press dough in bottom of pan. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 5 minutes on cooling rack.

    In 2-quart saucepan, heat caramels and cream over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until caramels are melted, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Spread over warm cookie base. Bake 5 minutes. Return to cooling rack. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top. Let stand 3 minutes; spread melted chips evenly over filling. Sprinkle with sea salt and remaining 1/2 cup toffee bits. Refrigerate bars until chocolate is firm, about 15 minutes. Cut into 8 rows by 4 rows. Store at room temperature in airtight container.

Expert Tips

If using 21-oz pouch Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix, use 1/2 cup butter, softened, 1 egg and 1 tablespoon water. No change to cookie sheet size. Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown. Makes 32 bars.

Jazz up your cookie tray by cutting bars into different shapes -- triangles, diamonds or tiny squares.

Toffee bits are in the baking aisle of your grocery store. They are sold in bags just like chocolate chips.
