RECIPE: Toffee Pecan Brownies

I made these for my salespeople & picky as they are, these disappeared:
4 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 TBL cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped Heath bars

Brown Sugar Topping:
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 TBL unsalted butter
3/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans

For the brownies, line an 8x8" baking pan with foil, extending foil over the sides. Combine the chocolate & butter in a saucepan & cook over low heat until blended, stirring constantly.
Cool 5 minutes. Whisk in the brown sugar, cinnamon & salt. Add the eggs 1 at a time, whisking well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Whisk for 2 minutes or until smooth. Add the flour, whisking just until blended. Stir in the chopped candy bars (I chilled the candy & chopped them in a processor.) Spoon into the prepared pan, smoothing the surface.
Bake in a preheated 325 oven for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.
For the topping, combine the brown sugar, whipping cream & butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly until smooth. Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla.
Let stand 10 minutes. Whisk until of spreading consistency. Stir in the pecans. Spread over the brownies.
Let stand 1 hour or until set. Serve cold or at room temperature. Store, covered in the refrigerator.~~From Down by the Water.

Ginger, This really sounds good. I will keep this one. Can't make it right now. Dh and i are on a diet. We are still on the south beach diet. But will make it latter.

Well, OF COURSE they are good-they have whipping cream in them!! So, that being the case, I will print out the recipe and need to make some cookies for our Rose Society meeting this week and this just might work!
