Coffee Toffee Bars

Cookie bars containing coffee, chocolate and pecans are topped with an almond glaze.

  • Yield: 24 servings ( Serving Size: 2x2" )
  • Cook time:23 Minutes


  • 2 1/4 cup(s) all-purpose flour sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 cup(s) butter softened
  • 1 cup(s) brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 teaspoon(s) almond extract
  • 1-2 tablespoon(s) instant coffee
  • 1 cup(s) chocolate, semisweet morsels
  • 1/2 cup(s) nuts (I use pecans) chopped


Sift flour with baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl. In large bowl, cream butter and gradually add brown sugar, creaming well. Blend in almond extract and instant coffee.

Add dry ingredients gradually; blend thoroughly. Stir in chocolate morsels and nuts.

Press dough into 15x10x1" jelly roll coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. If desired, frost while warm. Cut into bars or squares.

Almond Glaze: Combine 1 tbsp. soft butter, 3/4 cup sifted confectioners sugar and 1/8 tsp. almond extract. Add 1-2 tbsp. milk or water until of spreading consistency.

Note: I use 11/2 tbsp. of instant coffee. I think that amount gives the bars the best flavor.
