Sure, I’m never one to deny myself the luxurious, complicated pleasures of life, but I only try to treasure each simple treasure.
A bite of a chocolate chip cookie, sitting on the beach staring at the lapping waves, reveling in the sunshine, the first sip of rich hot chocolate, a cuddle session with my big, fluffy dog – all of them simple, but wonderful things that everyone should remember to treasure. Now being added to that list are Toffee Ritz Bars. They have four ingredients, come together in about 2 minutes, and are simply, wonderfully delicious.
Side note: Can we notice that three of things on my list of simple pleasures involve chocolate? Not sorry.
And when friends of mine need cheering up, I make them things with chocolate. Because chocolate can make anyone feel better (unless your allergic, in which case, I am so so sorry).
These bars are rich, but they are such a delicious simple pleasure. Make them for someone you love, someone who needs a pick-me-up, or just for yourself. They’re sure to put a smile on your face, and let’s be honest – around the holidays, who isn’t grateful for a quick, easy dessert? That’s just what these are. Share with those you love (or don’t), and enjoy!
