Toffee Brownies

I love brownies.  I love brownies like a fat kid loves cake.  It is my love of brownies that is forcing me to train for a half marathon so I do not become said fat kid.
Of course, I could also just do the sane thing, and not keep brownie ingredients around my kitchen at all times.  But if I didn't do that, I couldn't see this recipe and then decide to make it on a whim.  It helped that I just happened to have the required toffee bits on hand, and the bag was open because I'd had one of those 'must have chocolate' moments at a time when I did not, in fact, have a full suite of brownie ingredients on hand.  I hate resorting to baking supplies, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
Anyway, I'm not sure the toffee entirely comes through in these, but they are still pretty damn good.  They were also very quick to make and contain a crazily small amount of flour and sugar (but a ridiculous amount of chocolate).  Actually, they're not pretty damn good, they're very damn good.  They're still in my kitchen, and I'm totally not going to go have one right now.  Right?


  1. really, I'm your first follower. Amazing. Although HelloGiggles will quickly get you followers I'm sure. I love baking as well, though I seem to NEVER have time for it anymore.

    You can check out my utterly boring blog if you would like.

  2. OMG my first comment ever! Thanks :) I'll definitely swing by your blog.

    I shouldn't have time for baking, but it's my stress relief so I tend to prioritize it about the important things, like cooking healthy food or sleeping.

    1. I am one of those people that has too many hobbies to even name, and I often become overwhelmed in wanting to do them all, and then end up doing none of them. Sewing, baking, knitting, painting, reading, writing, etc. None of them ever really get accomplished. Although I have a beautiful list in my brain of all the things that I would love to do and may actually get to someday.
