Not only are these scrumptious, but I truly think it was these bars that led to the conception of my son, and the reason why he was 2 weeks late! (Even as a neo-nate, his chocolate gene was full-blown!) Try them...and see if they mark a milestone in your life:)
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar or 3⁄4 cup dark brown sugar
- 1⁄3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten

- 1 (10 ounce) bag toffee pieces
- 1⁄2 cup sweetened condensed milk
- 1 1⁄2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

- Preheat oven to 350*F.
- Grease a 13x9" baking pan, or line it with parchment paper.
- Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
