from the Lewis R. French

1 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend together butter, brown sugar, yolk and vanilla. Add flour and salt. Press into greased brownie pan. Bake until browned and sides are pulling from edges, about 35 minutes. Top immediately.


2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Pour the chips onto the toffee squares and return pan to oven for about one minute. Spread melted chips with knife until covering is smooth and even. On the boat, we place the pans on deck or in a cooler, as the chocolate won’t harden in a warm galley. You may have trouble in a warm kitchen as well!
