Every now and then, a splurge in the diet is needed.
One of my favorite ways to splurge is with chocolate, of course.
These chocolate toffee bars are simple to make, and the best part is, you probably have most of the ingredients on hand.
Even when I am splurging, I still like to make sure I am using quality ingredients. If you are eating sweets, it is always best to make sure the ingredients used are real, not overly processed.
That is why this is such a great recipe. You know exactly what you are eating.
This is a great way to feel good about a delicious treat for you and your family.

Lots of local shops make and sell toffee. Sure wish you would mention options for those who do not want to make it. Plus, think of all the possible advertisements you could generate for the Post.
