Looking for a recipe for a dessert that was called "English Toffee". It was served in our school cafeteria in Waukegan, IL. and we also made it in our home economics class. It was very rich, had graham cracker crust and a chocolate filling of some sort, but I can't remember what other ingredients and have lost the recipe for it. Does this ring a bell to anyone?

English Cream Toffee Recipe
I've had this for a while, cant remember where I got it other than a candy site. Just made it again and it is fantastic! I also add in chocolate chips when it is poured out on the sheet and setting up well. Just be careful about how long you cook it. Make sure that you stir it continuously, but not too fast either! Good Luck.
Does this look familiar?
No, the one from the link sounds good but that isn't it. This one had Baker`s chocolate in it I am almost sure, it had a very creamy consistency, I do remember you put in the fridge to set it up. I also don't remember nuts being in it, so really not sure why they called it English Toffee. For the "crunch" I think there was just the crumbled up graham cracker crust mix on the top. (10/31/2006)
Is the recipe from a Pillsbury Cook Off? If so, I think this is it. Only thing, this one uses nuts on top. If not, I'll keep looking for you as I have numerous cookbooks to page through :)
ENGLISH TOFFEE BARS
In a foil-lined 13x9 inch cake pan (grease the foil with butter), arrange the graham crackers. Entire bottom of pan must be covered with graham crackers, you might have to break to make an even fit. In medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar and butter and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, pour over graham crackers. Bake in 400
degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips and as soon as the chips are soft, spread over the top of the cracker crust. Sprinkle with nuts. Chill at least 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Break into pieces of all shapes and sizes (like English toffee candy). Store in refrigerator. These freeze nicely. Yield: at least 24 bits and pieces.
These recipes all sound very good but what I am looking for was a dessert, almost had a mousse-like consistency. Sort of truffle tasting if that makes sense, was cut into slices and served cold. (11/01/2006)
HMM, you use a mixture of Imperial measurements and Metric. what is 1/2 lb? is that pound? Could you let us know what that is in Metric? thanks. Beats me why the U.S.A doesn't convert to metric like the rest of the world.
Editor's Note: Yes, that is a half a pound. It would be 226 grams. We've been working on online conversion tables but so far haven't finished them. As for why? Who knows? (03/25/2007)
I think I have the recipe you need.
For the filling:
Beat for about 5 minutes. Pour into pan and top with remaining graham crackers. (09/06/2007)

Thank-you Diana, that is pretty close I think. But just wondering, no sugar in it? And does it go by a different name? (09/06/2007)
Hey Tammy from Missouri, I don't have the recipe right now but my sister has it . We went to Martinsville High School in Martinsville Indiana. She is supposed to send it to me as soon as I get it I will send it to you. I remember it well. We used to be so excited to buy our lunch on the day they served it! Carol from Florida. (10/04/2008)
I'm from Waukegan too, and remember this yummy dessert from the school cafeteria and home ec class. Please post the recipe if you find it. I've been searching for this one for awhile. (10/15/2008)
I also went to Martinsville Schools in Martinsville, IN and have been looking for this recipe. If anyone has found it, PLEASE post it. The one from Diana of Indiana looks like it may be it, is it? (10/30/2008)
