Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil or parchment paper, extending foil or paper over edges. In a chilled large bowl stir ice cream until smooth. Spread into prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze overnight.

  • Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper; freeze at least 20 minutes. Using foil or paper, lift frozen ice cream from baking pan and place on a cutting board. Cut into nine squares; insert a wooden stick into each square. Transfer to prepared baking sheet; freeze 1 hour.

  • Meanwhile, in a medium heatproof bowl combine chocolate and oil. Place bowl over a saucepan filled with gently boiling water (bowl should not touch the water). Cook until chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; remove bowl from saucepan. Cool 10 minutes or until a thermometer registers about 100°F.

  • Remove bars from freezer. Working quickly, hold sticks and dip bars, one at a time, into melted chocolate until coated. Sprinkle with toffee bits. Return to baking sheet; freeze 1 hour. If desired, wrap individually and store in freezer up to 1 month.
