I'm back.....for the moment ;)

Happy Holidays everyone! I hope everyone is happy and healthy and doing well! We have been super busy. We hosted a vegan potluck on the 20th in honor of the Winter was an amazing time with amazing vegan food! We feel so blessed to have our lives filled with such amazing friends and family!

My mother-in-love made these amazing cookies for the potluck and I wanted to share the recipe with you all....they sound kind of strange...but trust me...they are decadent!!!!!

Toffee Cookie Bites

1 cup soy butter
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
12 oz. vegan chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

cover bottom of a 13" by 9" baking pan with aluminum foil and line with saltines.
melt butter and sugar in microwave for 3-4 minutes or until sugar dissolves, stir occasionally.
gently pour mixture over saltines.
bake @ 325 degrees for 15 minutes or until bubbly.
remove from oven and let stand for 1-2 minutes until bubbling settles down.
