Cappuccino Crunch Bars



If you have a sweet tooth and want some delicious while sipping a steaming cup of hot coffee, these bars will satisfy you.  They are so good.

The hubby informed me that dessert was a bit scarce around the house so I quickly whipped these up.  It’s really hard not grabbing one every time I pass through the kitchen.

The coffee addition really gives them a rich background flavor and the white chocolate chip and toffee really puts them over the top.  Just what we needed with all the excess Halloween Candy over here!

Oh well, these are nice to have around the house for the holiday season and would be a great addition to any cookie platters you have going out to friends.

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in large bowl; set aside.

Beat butter and sugars in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy; about 3 minutes.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add coffee mixture and vanilla; beat well.  Add flour mixture; beat until well blended.  Stir in white chocolate chips and toffee bits.

Spread batter evenly in a well greased 13 x 9 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown (mine took 25).  Cool completely on a wire rack.  To get nice clean edges on the bars I refrigerate them for a couple hours before cutting them.

These really brown up nicely in the oven.

Don’t eat them all at once.

    I like making bar cookies, and try to put several varieties on the Christmas morning brunch table. I may create such a table for Thanksgiving this year, too, although my dearly beloved is always yelling at me for trying to do too much on Thanksgiving. These look great, and will surely join my repertoire! Thanks.

  18. Definitely better than a regular ‘ol brownie. Plus, there’s a lot of complementary flavors going on like toffee and coffee!

    ha–that’s not the most subtle of hints from your hubby, but i’m sure these appeased him. coffee does very nice things for chocolate, and toffee is always a welcome addition! i like the thinness of these beauts!

    Those bars look more moist and chewy than crunchy, but I like it better that way. It reminds me of a fudgy brownie!

    as mine bake, they are much bigger in height than the pictures appear. Also, the toffee she used appears to be chocolate covered – will try that next time. I just used toffee bits. Let you know how they turn out-
