Toffee Triangles are a perfect bite of chocolate and toffee that can be whipped up in no time. They’re a perfect treat for the holidays.
It’s time for Freaky Friday again, but this one is special, it’s the Holiday Cookie Exchange edition. If you’re not familiar with what Freaky Friday is, it’s a really fun recipe swap with 15 other food bloggers. We’ve all been assigned a blog to pick a recipe from and then cook and share that recipe on our blog. Because this is the cookie exchange edition, we all chose a recipe that we’d take to an actual cookie exchange. The really fun part is that none of us know who has our blog, it’s a secret to be revealed today.
For our cookie exchange, I was assigned to Big Rigs ‘n Lil’ Cookies, which I’m really excited about. I’ve known Kris from the early days of my blog and since she lives in Wisconsin and I live in Minnesota I feel like we’re neighbors. She has all kinds of delicious sweet treats on her blog, like these Cranberry Orange Cookies. You’ll also find many savory recipes like this gorgeous Taco Dip and this Mushroom & Swiss Cheeseburger Macaroni , which sounds like perfect comfort food to me.
It was a tough choice, but I finally decided to make her toffee triangles. You can see how Kris made them here. The reason I chose to make these was because, first of all, they sounded so delicious! They were also so easy to make, if you were going to bring these to a cookie exchange, it would be a breeze to make several batches.
After I made these toffee triangles, I took them to a dinner with our church group. They were a huge hit, the whole batch was nearly gone at the end of the evening! I will definitely be making more of these throughout the holiday season.
