Vegan Toffee Bars

Sometimes, you just feel like some toffee. I especially feel that way after a long day of court with crazy people… Unfortunately, since going vegan, my toffee options have really plummeted. No matter, though, since I’m perfectly capable of making things myself. These bars are great – not super sweet, but sweet and chocolatey enough to really make a dent in those cravings.

Vegan Toffee Bars

1 cup vegan butter (I used Earth Balance)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. vinegar (recipe originally called for 1 egg yolk, so substitute as you will)
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 bag vegan chocolate chips

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, vinegar and vanilla. Mix in the flour and salt, and beat until smooth. Press the dough into a jelly roll pan (15 x 10 x 1).

Bake at 350 for 17-19 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips on tops of the bars and allow to melt. When chocolate has melted, use a spoon to smooth the chocolate over the bars. Feel free to add pecans or walnuts at this stage as well.
