A combination of chow mein noodles, pretzels and cornflakes gives these sweet-salty bars a satisfying texture. Look for crunchy chow mein noodles—our secret ingredient—in the Asian foods section of your supermarket.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups broken pretzel pieces
  • 2 cups dried chow mein noodles
  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • 1 1/4 cup toffee bits
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 115 g semisweet chocolate (about 4 oz) chopped

Method

In food processor, pulse pretzel pieces with noodles until finely chopped. In large bowl, stir together pretzel mixture, cornflakes and toffee bits. Stir in condensed milk until well combined.

Using wet hands, press into bottom of parchment paper–lined 9-inch (2.5 L) square cake pan. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until puffed and golden, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely in pan.

While bars are cooling, in microwaveable bowl, microwave chocolate on medium-high, stirring once, for 45 seconds. Using offset palette knife, spread evenly over bars. Refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. Lift out onto cutting board; cut into rectangles. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Sweetened condensed milk starts as regular milk; then most of the water content is removed and sugar is added. Look for it in the baking section of your supermarket.
