    Topping was excellent, crust was bland. Topping didn't stay attached to crust. If I were to re-make, I wouldn't pre-bake the crust and would mix it more with the topping.

    These are really good. Hubby and I have been eating them all week and last piece tasted just as good as the first one. The last ingredient - toffee-and-chocolate baking pieces I believe is incorrect. It should be toffee pieces as there is no combination of toffee and chocolate. A definite repeat.

    Very, very good. Not too sweet and easy to make. Made these for a party and they only got better over the next couple days! Will definitely make again

    Very simple to make. Loved the topping. Only complaint was the crust. It was nice and crumbly but so bland and not sweet at all. Perhaps adjusting the powdered sugar or adding some white sugar into the dough would help.

    to cookfromsocal ...There are toffee pieces with chocolate now. I believe it was Heath brand in the cooking aisle along with the chocolate chips. They are delicious too!! just like the candy bar.

    I made these but didn't have toffee pieces and decided not to use the chocolate chips either. So I just covered the top with chopped pecans. They were delicious and tasted like little bites of pecan pie.

    If you found the crust bland, it's probably because it lacks salt. Just add a 1/4 to a 1/2 tsp of regular table salt with the flour. You could also probably increase the sugar by a quarter cup without causing problems. And, adding a tsp of vanilla also wouldn't hurt, but would certainly add flavor. If you don't like the sandy texture that comes with using confectioners sugar, substitute granulated sugar.

    i added salt to the crust and pre-baked it, but still lacked flavor. if i make again, would sub granulated sugar for confectioners, make half the crust amount and double the topping because, for me, the topping is the best part. i might try this again, but use the graham cracker crust recipe from 7 layer bars.

    delicious! i only used a stick of butter for the crust and used granulated sugar, added a bit of salt and brown sugar and it came out tasting like shortbread cookies and stayed together. the melted toffee and chocolate went great with the pecans. make sure you really grease the pan though
