Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

I was looking for a yummy treat to take to an activity so, of course, I went to Mel's Kitchen Cafe. And sure enough, I found some delicioiusness beyond belief. These are so ooey gooey and divine.
I got rave reviews from everyone that tasted them. And I love that they are in a bar form, making them easy to throw together. These could be my new favorite summer treat... but then I say that about everything. ;)

Chocolate Chip Toffee Bars

2 1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup butter, soft
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 package toffee bits, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9X13 pan with aluminum foil and lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray. Whisk together flour, salt and brown sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork until the mixture is crumbly. Add eggs and mix well with a wooden spoon or your hands. Mix in 1 1/2 cups of the chocolate chips and the 1 cup nuts. Set aside 1 1/2 cups of the dough. Press the remaining dough into prepared pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Pour the sweetened condensed milk evenly over the crust. Top with all but 1/3 of the toffee bits. Place pieces of remaining dough over the top. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chips. Bake for 25-30 more minutes, or till golden brown. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup toffee bits on top. Cool completely before serving.
