Coffee Toffee Bars

No pics, so sorry. They were pretty tasty though.

Coffee Toffee Bars

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 T strong coffee
2 tsp vanilla
4 tsp espresso powder
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar
3 eggs
8 oz heath toffee bits

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x13 glass baking dish with foil. Lightly grease the foil.

Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a medium bowl.

In a small bowl, mix coffee, vanilla and espresso powder until espresso powder is dissolved.

Cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Mix well after each addition. Add the coffee mixture and mix until blended. Add the flour mixture and mix until almost blended. Stir in toffee bits.

Using a wooden spoon or spatula spread the batter evenly in the baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a tester come out clean but not dry. Do not overbake or they'll be too hard.

Cool completely. Cut into squares.
