Ooey, gooey chocolate chip bars filled with pecans and toffee..
Well, it is Friday, though. Any big plans for you guys this weekend? We don't have much, but, are going to our local library tomorrow. We are going to learn about different types of wildlife animals. Wolves, skunks, porcupines. The organization that is running it, is bringing these animals to the library. So, we will encounter a real live wolf, a real live skunk, etc. The kids are so excited. It will be interesting and a good learning experience for us all, so, let's hope it doesn't freak anybody out.
For now, we have some amazing bars to share. These are such a gooey delight.
We have chocolate chips, pecans, toffee and my favorite stuff, sweetened condensed milk. Isn't that stuff so good? I could eat it with a spoon.
Anyway, these start off with a base and then, are layered with the before mentioned, sweet things. Quite simple to make and really delicious.
You are really going to love these, trust me!
