Yesterday, I was having one of those days where no matter how much I got done, there seemed infinitely more to do. Work needed to be tended to, the kids needed attention, the dogs wanted lots of petting … and in the middle of all the chaos, I decided to take a cooking break.
It might sound a little strange: having so much to do and just stopping for something that wasn’t on the must-list. But sometimes stopping is just what you need to keep going. Know what I mean?
So, while the kids looked on and asked many, many questions (I love their thirst for knowledge and understanding!), I whipped up these bars. Though the recipe might seem a little on the long side, it’s actually really speedy to make. And it’s also super easy.
The results were these delicious bars with layers of graham, almonds, toffee and chocolate. The sprinkling of sea salt at the end really took these from really, really good to OMG great. In fact, I did something I never do yesterday: I emailed a friend and told her that these were so good and she had to make them too. Her immediate response? Asking for the recipe.
And yes, the whole family devoured them as dessert last night. They are just amazingly good.
