Coffee Toffee Bars

These bars are a treat I've always
enjoyed at Christmas time
when my sis in law Amy makes them.
However being GF has taken that
pleasure away.
The other night I was craving something
different for a snack and suddenly
remembered these and decided to try
them GF and they are just as
good!
Coffee Toffee Bars
 
1 c. butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp almond extract
1 T. instant coffee powder
2 1/4 c. flour (I used Mamas Almond mix)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 c. chocolate chips
 
Combine butter, sugar, almond extract &
coffee powder. Cream together. Combine
dry ingredients & add to creamed mixture.
Stir in Chocolate chips.
Press into 9x13 pan. Bake at 350*
for 20 minutes. Cool. Frost with
almond buttercream frosting if desired.
 
Frosting
1/2 c. butter
3 c. powdered sugar
3 T. milk
1 tsp almond extract
Combine all and beat until light & fluffy.
 
They are actually very good without the
frosting also, but I'm a frosting lover so
I did them like Amy does!
