This Coffee Toffee Bar Recipe is great for working out frustrations. You see, I love smashing things with a hammer. (In fact, a sledge hammer may be my favorite tool of all time.) It’s so satisfying. What once was big, is now pulverized….


Before you call in the padded truck …. keep in mind that I only smash things that REALLY NEED smashing.

hee hee

Had to do a lot of baking today, as I am expecting a crowd of 20 hungry teens here tomorrow…. YIKES… So I pulled out this recipe for Coffee Toffee Bars. I love it because I get to use my hammer to smash some candy bars (and really, how often do you get to use a hammer in baking?) And because it tastes wonderful, despite being ugly.

Make it, it will make you feel better even before you eat it.

And when you do eat it? mmmmmm Mini-Nirvana

This is one of those recipes that needs a baked base, then you dump a lot of stuff on top of the base, and bake it a second time. Since the base is basically sugar cookie dough, you can use one of those 1 lb. bags of sugar cookie mix from the store, or you can buy a tube of sugar cookie dough, or you can use my scratch recipe for cookie dough (only use around 1/3 of it though, so it doesn’t get too thick… make sugar cookies with the rest)

Also, you can add more coffee crystals if you want. I like it strong, but maybe you want to dial back the flavor for kids.

And yes, I know it is possible to buy Heath Bar bits in a bag in the baking department… but where’s the fun in that? Buy 4 Heath bars (or 5) put them in a plastic bag, and smash them with your hammer. Soooo satisfying!

My friend calls this Coffee Toffee Bar Recipe “Cookie Crack”… they are that addicting.
Consider that your warning!

What Is A Heath Bar?

For those of you in the Great White North, and other places outside the US…. Heath bars are chocolate covered bars of hard toffee.

Skor Bars are kissing cousins…
