Chocolate Pecan Toffee Bars
Let me just start by saying one thing. There is no lemon anywhere in this recipe. Just pure decadent chocolatey melt-in-your-mouth goodness that might just bring you to tears. They're that good.
I was bored and browsing blogs yesterday when I stumbled upon this one. And the third recipe down? These amazing Chocolate Pecan Toffee Bars. So, what did I do besides drool all over my keyboard? Well, I bolted from work early and ran home to make these little morsels of sin.
And, despite the fact that THEY HAVE NUTS (oh, the horror!), The Husband still ate nine of them. Okay, more like three, but still. He's not a sweets guy, so that's saying a lot.
The directions for this recipe really confused me. Granted, most directions confuse me, so I'm sure a normal person would have no problem, but... I got confused. I'm sure I did something wrong (I found the dough hard to handle) (much like me) (ha), but they came out so rich and gooey and delicious that I just don't care. But, I thought I should warn you in case you can't control yourself either and run off to make these immediately.
Just don't be like me and eat so many you make yourself ill afterwards. Ahh, what the hell. Do it. They're totally worth it.
Now tell me this... Nuts? Or no nuts?
