4 Days Left!!!

4 more days to go! Wow this is coming up fast now!
Yesterday I made a chicken for Chicken Pot Pie, Shepard's Pie and Hamburg/Macaroni Casserole to put in the freezer for when we get back home. I thought it would be nice to not have to cook for the first day or so we're back. I also made some yummy Toffee Bits Triangles. They took all but 30 minutes to make and they're really, really yummy! Try it out! Hope you have an awesome day!!!

1 cup (250 mL) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup (250 mL) packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon (5 mL) vanilla
1 egg yolk
2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
1 package (220 g) CHIPITS® SKOR® Toffee Bits, divided
1 package (300 g) CHIPITS® Mini KISSES™ Brand Milk Chocolate Baking Pieces
1. Heat oven to 350°F (180°C).

2. In large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla until creamy.

3. Stir in flour and 1 cup (250 mL) of the toffee bits. Press into ungreased 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 inch (39 x 27 cm) jelly roll pan.

4. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until light brown. Immediately sprinkle mini kisses over top. Let stand until softened, about 5 minutes; spread evenly over top. Sprinkle with remaining toffee bits. Let cool completely. Cut into 3-inch (7.5 cm) squares; cut each square diagonally into 4 triangles. Makes 60 triangles.
