Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In large saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Stir sugar into the melted mixture until smooth.  Cool and then stir in eggs until well blended. Stir in vanilla until smooth.  Stir in flour and salt just until mixed.  Fold in the chopped toffee bars and mix well.
Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls of dough 1  1/2 inches apart onto un-greased cookie sheets and bake 12 minutes or until just set.  Let cookies stand on cookie sheets for 5 minutes then remove to finish cooling. Makes 36 cookies.

In large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in condensed milk until smooth.  Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Pour half the batter evenly over crust.
Lightly stir the melted chocolate into remaining batter and spoon over vanilla batter.  Swirl with knife to create swirls. Bake 45-50 minutes or until set. Cool, chill. Cut into bars. Store in refrigerator. Makes 2-3 dozen bars.
