Okay girls - get your minds out of the gutter and back to the matter at hand. Truly, get serious! We are here to talk about crunchy toffee bars. Let me just say that I am glad I made these earlier in the weekend because I ended up having to spend some time with a nice young doctor at the ER due to a severe asthma attack! It's heck not being able to breathe folks. It has now turned into acute bronchitis. Not sure which is better, but at least I can breathe. I just cough my lungs out every time I breathe now.
Since the yankee has decided all my baking is going to his hips, or his stomach, or wherever, I decided to just make half this recipe. It really was easy to whip up. My only problem was it was hard to spread the chocolate on top of the hot dough mixture. Was I supposed to let the base cool first? The instructions weren't too clear on that I thought. Or maybe my brain was foggy from no oxygen going there. I used milk chocolate instead of bittersweet in these because I am not a fan of the bitter. My toffee bits also had some chocolate in them because the hubster picked up the wrong package at the store. God love him. He tries. These bars were a bit too rich for my taste. Too buttery and chocolatey. And not crunchy really. I'm thinking I did not cook the crust long enough. Maybe they will be better in a day or two?Thanks to Whitney of What's Left on the Table for choosing the toffee bars. Whitney is a very creative blogger. The recipe for these bars will be posted on her blog so jump over there and try them today!
