      Now THIS is how you make coffee cake! Simply saying this is delicious would be an insult. Eating it warm is indescribable. This recipe is SERIOUSLY good.

      Fantastic, over the top, prior to baking, I sprinkled Demerara Sugar that I purchased from King Arthur Flour, it gave it a wonderful extra sugar-y crunch. I also placed the toffee bars in the freezer for a half hour or so, than whacked them in the wrappers on the countertop so I didn't have to cut them. Thank You Bev, this was awesome!
