I have to confess something. It’s time I came out of the closet (or pantry in this case.)
I don’t make everything from scratch. There I said it.
I always have a box of this stuff in my cabinet.
I can make biscuits from scratch. And I can make some awesome pancakes from scratch when I feel like it. But when I’m in a hurry, I pull this stuff out.
The other day I was looking for a recipe for something, I don’t even remember what, and I came across this recipe.
If you don’t have Bisquick (or you don’t like to use it) you can make up this Homemade Biscuit Mix to use as a substitute.

Nutty Toffee Bars
adapted from Betty Crocker
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups Bisquick or Homemade Biscuit Mix
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup coconut
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
- Combine butter and brown sugar, mixing until creamy and smooth.
- Add Bisquick and mix until well blended.
- Press dough into a greased 8 x8 or 9 x 13 pan.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 25-35 minutes, until golden brown.
- Immediately after removing from oven, spread chocolate chips over top of crust and let sit for 2-3 minutes.
- Then, using the back of a spoon, spread chocolate to cover evenly.
- Sprinkle coconut and nuts over top and gently press in to secure. Let cool completely before cutting.
(I used a 8 x8 like the recipe recommends but next time I'll use the 9 x 13 for a thinner crust.)
