Toffee Chocolate Bars
The recipe lay out reads as though there are only two layers in these toffee chocolate Bars, but when you see the photos you will recognize three of them. That is because the final topping is simply listed as part of the ingredients for the middle layer. Don’t worry. Once you read the recipe over, you will see how this recipe comes together to produce three fabulous layers of scrumpdillyiciousness.
These bars are made pretty much from scratch and use some toffee bits that you can buy at your local grocery store to add the flourish that finishes off this snack food. One thing that you might consider with this recipe is to use butter rather than margarine. It is hard to compete with the flavor of butter, although there are plenty of debates about what kind of butter like spread we should be eating, period. The American Heart Association recommends buying a spread that contains no trans fats, a fat that is created when vegetable oils (or other oils) are hydrogenated to obtain a solid state. Many margerines can contain trans fats. Butter does naturally contain a small amount of trans fats. Pro butter pundits argue that butter is a natural food, and so better to eat whereas margarine promoters say that this spread can be made to taste and act like butter but without the problematic fats. This is also one of the reasons that coconut oil has become yet another competitor in the fat marketplace. You decide.
These bars produce a three layer snack that is sweet and good to eat. Of course the kids will love it, but so will you. Make it when you have a few minutes to throw these easy ingredients together and surprise your family with a special snack tonight.Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Show Me Nan.
