Chocolate Brickle Sensations

Do you have those go to recipes that you know will ALWAYS please everyone?  I have quite a few up my sleeve, but I love these little cookies for their toffee crunch and chocolaty goodness.  Plus you literally toss all the ingredients together and portion them out.  How simple is that?

When company is coming unexpectedly, or I’m looking for just one more sweet treat that I know will be a hit, I pull out my recipe for Chocolate Brickle Sensations.

I’d love to claim this recipe as mine, but some 20 years ago I saw it in our local paper – a recipe sent in by a Pat Bollwerk.  I tore it out of the paper and have had it filed ever since, creating this recipe over and over again.

If you’re having company this weekend, asked to bring a dish to someone’s home, or even an extra nosh for Mother’s Day next weekend, I suggest making these.  With four dozen cookies from one recipe, these are guaranteed to disappear in one day!  Really!!!  For this recipe read more………
