  1. This look delicious. I was looking at it with my 2 teenagers looking over my shoulder, and they both said, “Oh yea, I want some of that it looks good.” So I’m going to try it!

    1. Yes, that’s how much the original recipes calls for but we have always used Hershey’s chocolate bars instead. I think it ends up being more chocolate than the 2/3 Cup. We use the larger bars you get at the check out counter. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Dana,
    These look amazing! Pinning for the next holidays! If I made these I would want to eat the entire batch! Thanks for sharing at the Blog Strut! Can’t wait to see what you bring next week!

  3. Chocolate, pecan, toffee…what more could a person ask for? Sounds delicious! What I really wish though is that I could have one right now, so I guess I’ll have to make them. Thanks!
