Moar Chocolate and Toffee!

We were in the last throes of the Spring Semester over at work (a fairly busy time at work), and a couple of colleagues brought over some treats to perk us up (or to celebrate the end of the semester…my memory doesn’t serve me perfectly).

One morning, we saw these Lacey’s Chocolate Toffee wafers with a post-it note saying “Please eat (me)!” I was able to find out later that these toffees were courtesy of one of our Course Reserves colleagues.

Not too long later, Buckeye Blue Devil bought some Confectious Toffee Almond Crunch.

This is what they look like under the hood…

Since Chocolate and Toffee are among my favorite flavor combinations (and yes, chocolate and coffee, too!), I couldn’t pass these up. 😉

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been sequestered in my apartment for the past week, mostly catching up on projects at home and episodes of Man v. Food (the only episodes I have not seen now are the clip-based episodes, as they are not included with the DVDs). And of course, it’s about time I caught up with this blog.

This blog started with a cookie recipe… might as well restart it with one.

Most who know me know quite well that I’m an unrepentant chocoholic. I’m also a fan of toffee. When combined, they make a very happy hapa. The next two posts are going to feature desserts that combine the two.
