Oatmeal Toffee Bars

Fortunately, I get invited to several vacation properties over the summer holidays. Taking a good array of baking is one sure way of getting invited back. I thought I would try this new recipe out on my golf foursome first and they loved them so much, that I had to immediately pass the recipe along.
They are easy and fast to make and hold up well for travel. I hope you get a chance to make them for some of your pals over the summer.
