English Toffee Bars

We made these bars last night and they were absolutely delicious! I'm not sure if it was the combination of nuts and chocolate, or the fact that the main ingredients are brown sugar and butter... either way, they were pretty tasty!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup pecan halves
TOFFEE TOPPING (recipe follows)
1 cup Hershey's Milk Chocolate Chips

1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. Combine flour and brown sugar in large bowl. With pastry blender or fork, cut in butter until fine crumbs form (a few large crumbs may remain). Press mixture onto bottom of ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Sprinkle pecans over crust. Prepare toffee topping; drizzle evenly over pecans and crust. (I lined my pan with foil and sprayed the foil with non-stick cooking spray before assembling these bars)
3. Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until topping is bubbly and golden; remove from oven. Immediately sprinkle milk chocolate chips evenly over top; press gently onto surface. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. About 36 bars.

TOFFEE TOPPING: Combine 2/3 cup butter and 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar in small saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Continue boiling, stirring constantly, 30 seconds. Use immediately.
