Today’s post is for the best toffee squares you’ll ever eat. HUGE STATEMENT but true! This is a family recipe that my MIL makes and I’ve started making them now also and I’ll never stop. They are a delicious cookie bar base topped with milk chocolate and pecans. They are so dang good and so incredibly easy to prepare. If you need to bring a dessert for the holidays or are looking for a new recipe to try, please do yourself a favor and just make these.

I love making family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. I think it’s important to learn them and continue to make them. So when I have a chance to learn recipes from my husbands side of the family, I want to learn those as well. Making these holiday cookies always puts me in the spirit and gets me so excited for Christmas.
Trust me, these are so easy to make and every time I gift them to someone or serve them at a Christmas party, they go so quickly. They’re the perfect blend of sweet and salty from the pecans. Plus, if you aren’t a “baker” you can still prepare these no problem!
If you want to try another recipe, be sure to try my Rum Balls! They are another Holiday favorite that I make every single year. So good!
