These were amazing!  Love, love, love them.  The almonds get all nice and crunchy in the middle there, it was a tasty surprise.

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups flour

1 cup sliced almonds

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup white chocolate chips

1/2 cup toffee bits

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Line 9 x 13″ pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.

2  Beat butter for 30 seconds on medium.  Add brown sugar and salt and beat until light and fluffy, scraping bowl as needed.  Beat in egg yolk and vanilla until combined.  Beat in flour gradually until well incorporated.

3  Press dough into bottom of prepared pan.  Sprinkle with almonds.  Using the back of a metal spatula, press the almonds down into the top of the dough.  Bake 20 minutes or until firm and light brown around edges.  Sprinkle with both chocolate and white chips.  Bake for 3 – 5 minutes more or until chips are soft and shiny.
