Oatmeal Toffee Bars

This recipe was originally for oatmeal caramel bars but, I felt that toffee was a little more seasonal. I, personally, associate caramel with Christmas as opposed to Thanksgiving. I usually do my baking on Saturday but, I had so much to get done yesterday that I ended up doing it on Sunday evening. It worked out well because we had a pretty late lunch today.

Making these was a trip to aroma heaven. These could go for either breakfast or dessert. Yum. I intend to serve them for dessert with Sunday dinner this evening.

Recipe from BHG dot com.
