HEATH TOFFEE COOKIE BARS – Delectable cookie bars loaded with milk chocolate toffee bits inside and out. Each and every bite is packed to the hilt, making it impossible to take even a tiny nibble without consuming a piece of toffee.
The sweet, dense bottom layer is speckled through with the crunchy candy bits and topped with a layer of chocolate followed by more toffee bits. If you have toffee lovers in your life then this was made just for them.
I never can keep secrets from you so I should let you know I have an entire case of Heath toffee bits in my possession right now. Blame it on the UPS man. He’s the one who dropped it off for me like I was running a bakery or something.
Toffee lovers stay tuned. . .
