Sooo…I wouldn’t say I’m proud of these bars…They aren’t really homemade. I know many people out there would refuse to make a recipe like this, but I just had to go for it.
And they pretty much ended up tasting like crack. AKA delicious.
My only problem was I couldn’t find the toffee bits ANYWHERE. I think I went to 3 different stores and got totally frustrated before I just said screw it and bought the Heath baking bits. The chocolate on the outside of the toffee didn’t really hurt anything, but be warned.
While making these you might be shocked at the amount of eggs and cream cheese…Just don’t tell anyone at the party you are going to what’s in them. Act like you made them from scratch…but don’t pretend like these babies are healthy.
