Pecan Toffee Bars

*You can find these items at your Illinois farmers market.


1/2 cup soft margarine

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg yolk*

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup raw quick cooking oats*

3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

1 tablespoon butter

1/2 cup chopped pecans*


  • Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9x2 inch pan.

  • To start you'll need to make the crust of the bars. To do so, cream the margarine, brown sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla.

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and oats.

  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients.

  • Bake for 15-15 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly.

  • While the crust is baking, make the topping. To do so, in a double-broiler melt the chocolate and butter.

  • Spread the chocolate mixture over the warm crust. Sprinkle with pecans.

  • Cool completely before serving. Use a sharp knife to cut into bars.
