Hi everyone, it’s Allie here posting from Through Her Looking Glass today sharing an addictive recipe for Chocolate Toffee Squares.
The last time I posted here was just before Christmas! Time: it flies. Since then we have ushered in a brand new year. Wishing a belated Happy 2016 to each of you!
“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been” ― Rainer Maria Rilke
I love that quote, and sincerely hope the year ahead is brimming with hope and possibility for you and your family. Maybe you made some New Year’s resolutions. I made a few, but mostly resolved to give myself permission to take little snatches of time away from caregiving and nurturing others to include things that bring me joy each day. Things that make my heart sing. Like a quiet cup of tea with a friend, an hour at Barnes & Noble flipping through my favorite magazines or a fancy paper straw in my breakfast smoothie.
I do love baking, and was thumbing through my recipe cards last week when I came across a simple Toffee Squares recipes I hadn’t made in decades. So I made the Toffee Squares in about ten minutes, then went one step further. Added a drizzle of melted chocolate. You can’t go wrong with chocolate my friends. And voila: Chocolate Toffee Squares!
People: these are so incredibly addictive and seriously one of the easiest bars you’ll ever make. My family loved them! Just five ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Better dust off your super hero cape, because you’ll be needing it stat after baking these.
Bring butter and brown sugar to a boil on the stovetop. Pour the hot mixture over graham crackers squares you’ve already placed on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with coarsely broken walnuts and bake for ten minutes.
Let cool for 3-5 minutes, then break apart into squares.
Use a small spoon to drizzle toffee squares with melted chocolate!
