You have 2 choices, leave now or get a tissue for the drool that's about to drip from your lips. Remember, you have been warned.
This is so easy & I can't decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
That's all you need.
Now, you should know that I do know how to measure hard butter using the displacement method as taught to me in grade 8 home economics BUT look at the handy dandy measurements on our Canadian butter. I know it's not totally acurate & a pastry chef may whack my knuckles with a whisk, but it works for this recipe, so chill, be easy on yourself & cut on the lines.
While the crust is baking we start to work yummy, delicious, sweet, ooey gooey middle.
Pour mixture over warm crust, be sure to lick a spoon, the pot or your finger because you are a few steps away from .......... Outofthisworldtotallyamazingdeliciouslyaddictivetoffeesquares
Bake at 325 for another 20-25 minutes.
It should come out looking similiar to this bubbly concoction, its not going to be a runny middle, its going to be a firm, delicious, delight! Ok, I'm drooling!
Once I've removed the pan from the oven I let the mixture set up (firm up) for about 5 mins, then I toss on a handful (see how accurate I am) of semi-sweet chocolate chips, pop it back in the oven (that I've already turned off) for about 1 minute. Remove from oven & spread chocolate chips with a spoon, this time I really use the spoon, it's not a prop.
Thinking in my head....I really want to use my hand but it's way too hot!
Now the tough part, waiting......... still waiting.........just waiting.........
This takes a while to cool, too long I might add but IT MUST BE COOLED before cutting in to. Honestly, in an impatient piggy-like moment I tried them warm...yuk! Believe me it's worth the wait. May I suggest you make them at night before bed & allow them to cool in the refrigerator overnight. Making them in the evening acomplishes 2 things, (1) You fall asleep to your home smelling like toffee & chocolate (2) You get to have a Squaregasm for breakfast with your coffee in the morning! Yummy !
