Chocolate Toffee Crescent Bars

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by rockinred

This is a Pillsbury recipe that an old roommate's mother introduced me to. These are, quite seriously, one of the most delicious (and horrible for you) desserts you will ever eat. They are really easy to make and so good that I have to bring them to an event to share or I will eat the ENTIRE pan! I can't believe no one has previously posted this one...

I first found this in 1975 in Pillsbury's Bake-Off Best Recipes booklet, I think this was the grand prize winner that year. It has been a family favorite ever since. The original recipe called for 1 1/2 cups nuts and 6 oz real chocolate chips. It also specified pecans.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) canpillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls (any brand will do, but I've found store brands not to do well with this recipe so just stick to a na)
  • 23 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 23 cup butter (margarine will not work properly with this recipe)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Separate crescent dough into two large rectangles. Place in ungreased jelly roll pan (15x10 inch). A cookie sheet will do, but just make sure it has edges. Gently press dough to cover bottom of pan. Seal perforations.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In a small saucepan combine brown sugar and butter. Boil 1 minute. Pour evenly over dough.
  4. Sprinkle with nuts.
  5. Bake 14 to 18 minutes, until golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven, immediately sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Slightly swirl pieces as they melt, leaving some partially melted or whole.
  7. Cool and cut into bars.
