This made it into Book #179627. I gave Buddha 4 of them, then asked "you're the chocolate lover, what do you think?" He replied "How many more of these are ready that I can eat?" Great job Marlitt!

I wish I could say they looked like the picture...maybe a smaller pan? I would HIGHLY recommend a longer chilling time for both the toffee and chocolate layers. And I had a problem w/separation when I unveiled the final product.
