These Fudgy Toffee Brownies are rich chocolate brownies with toffee pieces baked in, then topped with a chocolate, toffee and almond topping.



  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (about 12 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 5 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups English toffee bits
  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup whole almonds (about 3 1/2 ounces), toasted, coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 9x9x2-inch metal pan with foil, leaving overhang. Butter foil.
  2. Combine 1 cup chocolate chips, butter, and 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate in heavy large saucepan. Stir over low heat until chocolates melt and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.
