Not only is Shelly hilarious, but she also makes the most delicious and fun desserts in every.single.post.  I can not stop drooling over her Chubby Hubby Bars or Pumpkin Dump Cake.  Really, I should have an email folder dedicated to the recipes from her blog that I send myself.  Either that or I should move in with her.

So when I saw her Chocolate Toffee Bars I immediately added them to my must make list.  I put a bit more emphasis on the peanut butter in the recipe and was thrilled with how they came out.

The only problem was, they are too good.  I’m not kidding.  I couldn’t keep myself from eating these as soon as they came out of the oven.  The only thing that saved me was knowing I had to donate some to a LCC Foundation raffle.

I think from now on, I need someone to come and remove desserts from my apartment immediately after photographing them for the blog.  Any takers?
