Myohmy. What a fun filled rainy sweet treat day it was. I got to hold babies and chat with friends and eat lots of delicious goodies.Actually, I have to admit, after making sweet deliciousness for 2 days, I didn't feel like anything sugary. I'm still in shock that it happened. So instead I snacked on hot wings, fruit and celery.
While everyone loved the easiness of the pretzel hugs/kisses, it seemed like the toffee bars were the most requested recipe. I mentioned I'd share the recipe here, but now I know a few local friends want it too.
