Good Taste: toffee bar thank you gift

 
I needed to make a thank you gift for a friend recently. I dug through my recipes and found my recipe for graham cracker toffee bars. You can find the recipe here via The Pioneer Woman’s Tasty Kitchen site.

I don’t make these bars very often. Not that they are difficult to make – in fact, they’re super easy. The reason I don’t make these very often is that they are extremely dangerous. Addicting, 10-step program, can’t stop eating these good.

But since I would be giving away “most” of the bars, I went ahead and made a batch. Here’s proof – the bars getting wrapped up to be given away.

I wrapped the bars in plastic and then covered them in pink tissue paper and added baker’s twine and a pretty card.

I’ll be delivering the goodies tomorrow.

And eating a few leftover bars tonight.

Come back tomorrow for the Inspiration Board link party.
I'd love to see what you've been creating.
