fudgy chocolate chip toffee bars

Ok, I admit it, I'm a Pinteresting fool! Found this recipe through Pinterest, but it's originally from Pillsbury... totally worth it!

the goods:

1/2 cup butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (32 squares)
1 bag (8 ounces) toffee bits
1 roll refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough
1 bag (12 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish. Set the cookie dough roll out for about 10 minutes to soften up. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together 1/2 cup melted butter, 1 and 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, and 3/4 cup toffee bits. Pour mixture into the greased pan and press evenly until mixture covers bottom of pan. Refrigerate for about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat the condensed milk, chocolate chips, and tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Stir frequently until the chips are melted and the mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Spread the chocolate mixture over the graham cracker crust.
In another mixing bowl, break up the cookie dough and stir in the remaining 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs until blended. Crumble the mixture evenly over the chocolate layer and sprinkle the remaining 3/4 cup toffee bits on top.
Bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely before cutting, about 2 more hours.
