Here’s an easy recipe for homemade Heath Bars:
Yes… it’s like your favorite candy bar, but homemade! Well, it’s my favorite anyways. I love the crunch of the toffee with that chocolate layer on top.
Choose either almonds or pecan to sprinkle on top of the chocolate. I prefer almonds… but these Heath Bar pieces are awesome either way.
This is a lovely recipe to add to holiday treat platters, or even to just make for having around for sweet munching.
Warning: it’s awfully addictive. If you think you can eat just one piece… NOPE. Not gonna happen.
Thank you to Miranda from the CookieDoughAndOvenMitt.com blog for shooting these beautiful photos of the Heath Bars for me. I think Miranda certainly captured how delicious they truly are!
