Yummy in my Tummy

Can I just say, where have these been all my life?



Holy moly, can we, in the words of Uncle Eddie say, “that right there is Goooo-ood!”

Today I read on MckMama’s blog a recipe for Chocolate Caramel Toffee Crunch Bars. They looked absoultely delicious and I knew I had to try them. I also needed to make a little something for my employees so this seemed like the perfect cookie-alternative.

I went to Wally World and bought the ingredients. You can see MckMama’s recipe and instructions.

I had to tweak it slightly. For a large cookie sheet, I used 1.5 sleeves of saltines, 2 sticks of butter and 1 C of brown sugar. I used her recipe first but it wasn’t enough because I think I had a bigger pan and more crackers. So I quickly made some more caramel and made note on my recipe. Also, to make things a little more fun and because I love white chocolate, I used 1 bag of milk chocolate chips and half a bag of white chocolate. It all ends up swirled together in the end anyway but I love the taste.

That can’t be healthy.


My assistant made sure I didn’t burn anything and was there to taste test when needed.


Caramel cracker layer, then you bake that baby.


And you wait. Approximately 8 minutes. And then your timer flies off your fridge and disassembles itself so you don’t know how much time is left and you have to wing it. Oh right, that shouldn’t happen but it did to me.


You take pictures of yourself because you’ve got nothing better to do while you wait. Although I liked the second one enough to make it my profile picture on Facebook. At least it’s not like the typical “my space” picture taken in the bathroom mirror:

Note, I do not know that girl, she was merely found on google.



Pretty enough to eat. And I did, a few!

Cooling in the fridge. A little heavy on the blur there, should have bumped up the aperture some. 


Loving the bokeh from the tree lights.


I’ll reluctantly be packing several of them up to take to work, but I’ll definitely be saving some for this weekend’s Christmas festivities.

How does that sharing concept go?

One for you, two for me…one for you, two for me…
