Toffee Brownies

We planned a weekend getaway. The boys and I both had four days off this weekend because of President’s Day and parent-teacher conference comp. day. So we decided to take a road trip to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I haven’t been back to Pittsburgh in 2.5 years so it was time to visit it again. I love this place. Maybe not the driving because it can get crazy.

I decided to make some cookies and brownies for the trip. You can’t go wrong with some yummy treats. Tonight I went to visit my aunt and took the container of brownies and the Peanut Butter Cups Chocolate Cookies to her house. She raved over the brownies as she reached for a second one. Then she told me they were the best brownies she had eaten. She couldn’t believe I made them from scratch.
