Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups

This week’s assignment for Tuesdays with Dorie is Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups. If you’re a fan of Almond Roca buttercrunch, you’ll love these Chocolate-Covered Toffee Breakups. There’s a nice buttery flavor in the crunchy toffee that complements the taste of the toasted almonds and chocolate.

Friends and coworkers have been busy harvesting delicious avocados lately, so I decided to try baking avocado chocolate chip cookies using these home-grown treasures.

This is the kind of recipe that’s perfect for people who don’t have a lot of ingredients to work with. How do I know? My refrigerator only had some eggs, milk, cheese, butter, and experimental baking things in it. When I see these things listed, it seems like I’m big on dairy! These brownies are […]
