|Milk Chocolate Toffee Bars|
I was looking over my son's paperwork for school and noticed the new policies for school behavior. After reading it I realized that according to the new policy I am a bully. See they are now defining bullying as giving another student a 'look'. All the women in my family have a 'look'. It's the look that says that you better stop talking and go into the other room or your going to dig yourself into a hole. I also have a tendency to glare when I think someone is acting a little dense. This evening I discovered that apparently that makes me a bully. Hopefully they are being more serious with what is defined by a look being a form of bullying. I'm pretty sure I gave and received a lot of looks in high-school. I do understand that it can be far more serious such as a bunch of girls continuously giving another girl the evil eye. It just sounds funny when it isn't further defined. Sometimes it takes behavior that I need to modify in my kids to remind me that I need to change some of my own behaviors. The world would be a better place if we all stopped to re-access how we treat each other, even the small things such as eye gestures. On to lighter subjects, the recipe! Yesterday I tried a new recipe for Milk Chocolate Toffee Bars from Better Homes and Gardens.
This recipe has 8 ingredients. It takes 55 minutes of total time, 25 minutes of which is active and makes 36 bars. I only made a few changes to the original recipe. My pantry cupboards have been less than organized lately and my cinnamon seemed to have disappeared into it's shelves. So I left it out of the recipe. It was probably for the best since my two boys aren't big fans of the taste of cinnamon. My schedule has been a little crazy so I cheated and used pre-chopped pecans. With sales it turned out that they were actually cheaper than buying the pecans whole. The total cooking time was slightly longer than the recipe suggested. It took approximately 35 minutes to fully brown.
These bar cookies are pretty rich. My husband and kids are normally huge sweets eaters, but they were only able to eat one of these cookies at a time since they were so sweet. Since I can't eat gluten I wasn't able to try this recipe, but all the males in my house loved it. They would be great to take to a bake sale or a party since they make 36 bars and taste good enough that you can just eat one.
