Chocolate Toffee Fudge Brownies

Chocolate Toffee Fudge Brownies recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Fudgy, chewy, chocolate toffee brownies are perfect with a tall glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee. The toffee adds a bit of crunch on top and a great flavor throughout each brownie. These brownies have such a rich, deep chocolate flavor they are closer to fudge than traditional brownies.

I made these to share with some friends last week and they disappeared in minutes. The recipe was immediately requested by several people and I promised to post it soon. I love when a dessert turns out that well!

Chocolate Toffee Fudge Brownies - Traditional, Gluten Free or Dairy Free
Yield: 16-24 servings
(printable recipe)

1/2 cup butter **
2 cups semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 eggs
2/3 cup brown rice flour *
1/3 cup tapioca starch *
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup toffee bits, reserve 1/4 cup for topping

* If you do not need a gluten free version of this recipe, simply substitute 1 cup of AP flour (total amount needed) for the items marked with an *
** If you need a dairy/casein free version of this recipe, you can substitute 1/2 cup melted coconut oil for the butter.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment paper or line it with foil and grease it very well with butter. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, over medium heat. When the butter has melted, add the chocolate chips and stir with a whisk until they have melted. Remove from the heat, add the sugars and whisk until smooth.

Add the vanilla and then whisk in the the eggs, one at a time. When the mixture is smooth and shiny, slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixture in the saucepan. Stir to combine thoroughly. Add 3/4 cup toffee bits.

Spread the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan and then sprinkle the top with the reserved toffee bits. Bake for 28-32 minutes, just until an inserted toothpick shows moist crumbs. (30 minutes is perfect for my oven.) Let the bars cool completely before slicing. Enjoy!

  1. I think a pan of brownies is a beautiful thing! I adore chocolate and toffee too? Wonderful idea and I know it's tasty. Thanks for the awesome recipe Mary!

  2. Oh my word, those look absolutely heavenly!!! I'm almost afraid to make them, as I'm sure I could eat the whole pan!!! :)

  3. These remind me of Lindt's sea salt caramel bar in brownie form!

    1. Tapioca starch is one of the gluten free flours that I use for baking. You can find it with the other specialty flours in the baking aisle at most grocery stores. You can also order it online.

  5. These look awesome! I'm sharing your turtle cheesecake on my facebook page this afternoon :) Love your page!

  6. Do you think it would work with coconut oil instead of butter?

    1. I've never tried that with this recipe myself, but coconut oil is a great sub for butter with most baking (especially in chocolate recipes). I don't have any reason to think it wouldn't work. If you do try it, let me know how it works for you!
