Whenever my husband’s birthday rolls around, I can count on a few things. First, he’ll definitely want to visit our favorite Japanese restaurant downtown for a rice and miso-laden feast. Second, he’ll almost certainly have a gory horror movie (or a DVD box set full of gory horror movies) on his wish list. Third, his mom will mail him a box containing her super-delicious Skor Bar Brownies. I think that last part is what I look forward to the most! I’ve been enjoying these chocolaty, toffee-rich treats for nearly 10 years now, and finally got her to share the recipe — which happens to be super easy to make!

½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
2 squares unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup all-purpose flour
3 Skor bars, crushed (Heath bars work too)
½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Microwave butter and unsweetened chocolate in large bowl or glass measuring cup until melted. Stir until smooth.
Stir in sugar, then add eggs and vanilla. Beat lightly with a wooden spoon just until combined. Stir in flour.
Spread batter in a greased 8"×8"×2" baking pan. Sprinkle crushed Skor bars and chocolate chips evenly over batter. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, then cut into 16 pieces. Serve and enjoy!
