These Gluten Free Holiday Toffee Squares are easier to make than stovetop candy, and they are dairy free! My kids call this recipe "cheater toffee" since it's so easy to make and tastes like toffee Gluten free, dairy free; Free of: peanuts, soy, eggs, dairy
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 9x13-inch pan with either well-greased foil OR parchment paper that covers all sides (both options work well). Set aside pan.
Melt Earth Balance (or coconut oil) in a medium sized microwaveable bowl for about 30 seconds at a time in the microwave until it melts.
Stir into the melted Earth Balance the brown sugar, honey, vanilla, oats, and salt.
Mix well and spread into the prepared pan. It's okay if the mixture isn't spread to every corner because this will spread out and into the corners and edges of the pan as it cooks.
Cook for 12-15 minutes until golden in color and crisp on the edges. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Once the base is cooled, melt the chocolate chips with the palm oil and spread over the base completely. Sprinkle with your favorite holiday sprinkles, mini chocolate chips, or drizzle with melted dairy free white chocolate.
Set in the fridge until the chocolate has set. Cut into 24 or 30 pieces (4x6 or 5x6) and store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
**If you use coconut oil, it will be a little more difficult to mix (melted coconut oil doesn't like to mix with sugar). There may also be a little bit of coconut oil that separates from the toffee squares in the bottom of the pan, but this toffee square recipe is still great made with coconut oil :)The edges of the toffee squares will be harder (like real toffee) and the center of the pan will be softer
