When I first decided to make this, I was going to leave off the chocolate glaze. But, after seeing how plain the bars looked without it, I decided to go for it, but add a bit of a crunch with some cocoa nibs. Great idea, if I say so myself.
It wasn’t until this recipe that I discovered what toffee is. I just thought I didn’t like it. Maybe it’s because I never liked nuts very much growing up. I didn’t realize toffee is basically chocolate and almonds. I’m okay with that. A bit of fun crunch with a bit of salty sweet action. Now I know! I will say that this pie is a little messy to eat. I was very careful to make sure the crust would not get soggy…maybe too careful? It ended up being quite crisp. I could have baked it for a bit less time initially, I suppose. Oh well. Help out your guests by giving them a nice knife and fork. Or, they could just pick it up and eat it. That’s what I did, pizza style.
Breathe a sigh of relief! After making the latest batch of brownies for my dad, I am officially back in chocolate craving mood. Not a pregnancy craving, just straight up normal Aly eating. Yay! I knew I wanted something chocolatey but could not tell what I was in the mood for. I thought about buying some more ice cream bars (they had been my favorite treat at night to help with the nausea, satisfy my dairy cravings, and just general happiness), but then realized I wanted something I could really bite into and chew.
