I have always been the baker in our house. There is one exception during the holidays though, when the hubs steps in to make his mom’s toffee bars.

Now, you know they are super easy if he’s putting his baking apron on, so if you need a quick, easy and yummy treat, these are it.

Seriously easy…and who doesn’t love melted chocolate spread on a cookie.

Easy to make toffee squares recipe.

Yum! I think chopped almonds would be good on these too but my husband won’t stray from the recipe.

Maybe I’ll try some next time. 😉
