Toffee Bars

Toffee Bars | URBAN BAKES

My parents must have known I was born with a sweet tooth.  They just had to.  I guess they kept me away from the good stuff to prevent my pant size from getting too big because I’m just now discovering what toffee is.

(sigh)

I’ve been deprived.

Contemplating for the past couple of weeks while standing in the baking isle of Target, I finally decided to get my hands on this little bag of toffee bits.

Best. Decision. Ever!

Actually, it’s a bittersweet choice since I now have a new profound love for toffee which can be a bad thing too.  I understand my child-candy/chocolate-deprivation.  Can’t blame the parents.  I can only thank them.

Toffee (NOT coffee) is pretty much one of the best creations,making this cookie bar one of my favorites.

If you enjoy chocolate with a nutty crunch, like myself, then this is it.  A definite must try.  With a similar taste and texture as a Twix candy bar (without the caramel of course), you won’t be disappointed.

Now if only I can make a second batch before eating this stuff straight from the bag, is a dilemma I’m facing.  It’s that good!
