    Super easy to put together - these smelled fantastic while baking, and look absolutely fantastic! Oh, did I mention that they're extremely yummy? I only used 1 bag of toffee chips, which was about 1 1/4 cups, which was perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Tagged for Alphabet Soup Tag.


Greetings! I live in western Wisconsin with my wonderful husband, 2 dogs, 3 cats, 4 horses, 1 mule and an Amazon parrot. My husband is a Certified Natural Hoof Care Practitioner and Field Instructor which keeps him very, very busy. I am a nurse and have been working in an elementary school since 1989. We have two grown sons. Our older son is an Air Force Academy graduate and pilot (engaged to be married in October 2006) and our younger son is working on a degree in Marketing. My husband and I love to travel and camp in our 5th wheel trailer or spend time at our cabin in northern Minnesota. I love spending time with my family and friends. I am an avid reader, belong to a local book club, and I never go anywhere without a book. In my free time, I enjoy going to movies, traveling and shopping with my girlfriends, collecting and displaying my Department 56 Snow Village pieces, adding to my Wizard of Oz collection, taking cooking classes, collecting cookbooks, playing cards and board games and at present, I am a member of three 500 card clubs. However, my real passion is cooking!!
