Chewy Toffee Almond Bars

While making cake pops, I spotted this recipe on the back of the Heath Bits package.

1 cup butter (two sticks)
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/3 cups Heath Bits Toffee Bits
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sliced almonds - divided
3/4 cup coconut flakes

1. Heat oven to 350. Grease side of 13 x 9 inch baking pan.
2. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Gradually add flour, beating until well blended. Press dough evenly in prepared pan.
3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, combine toffee bits and corn syrup in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until toffee is melted (about 10-12 minutes). Stir in 1/2 cup almonds and 1/2 cup coconut. Spread toffee mixture to within 1/4 inch of edges of crust. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup almonds and remaining 1/4 cup coconut over top.
4. Bake an additional 15 minutes or until bubbly. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars. About 36.
