I call this chocolate toffee dessert, but many people like to call it Christmas crack, and for good reason. This dessert is simply delicious. This is one of my favorite recipes that my mom taught me to make.

I’ve been eating this since I was a kid. I’m so surprised at the ingredients. They are so simple but oh so delicious! It’s very addictive.

 Get creative! Instead of chocolate chips, you can use any flavor! I like dark chocolate but you can use any kind. Once I used butterscotch and chocolate together, so get creative with it if you want!)
