National Buttercrunch Day | Buttercrunch Bars – The Foodie Patootie

National Buttercrunch Day | Buttercrunch Bars

Toffee. Buttercrunch. They are basically the same. There are some small differences, which is best explained by TheNibble.com, but overall, I’m creating what the majority of people just call “toffee”.

I expressed my love for toffee before when I made these Apple Toffee Dips. I wondered how I could love something that includes chocolate with such intensity. My thoughts are always quickly dissipated when I just chow down for nothing else comes to mind except how delicious this combo always is.

For National Buttercrunch Day, I thought it would be best to just make these bars. One of the easiest desserts one can make, I was plenty pleased with these bars and know you will be too.
