  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a rimmed 9-by-13-inch cookie sheet with butter-flavored cooking spray.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls and pat into pan, being sure to seal perforations.
  3. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine dry pudding mix, dry milk pow­der, and water.
  5. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and starts to boil, stirring constantly.
  6. Remove from heat. Stir in marshmallows and vanilla extract. Spread hot mixture evenly over warm crust.
  7. Place cookie sheet on a wire rack. Evenly sprinkle toffee bits and pecans over top.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Cut into 32 bars.
  • Do not use inexpensive rolls as they don't cover the pan properly.
