Cake Mix Toffee Bars for the #SecretRecipeClub

Yum
It's the monthly edition of the Secret Recipe Club reveal day and I am so happy to have been spying on Life on Food this month where I decided to try her Cake Mix Toffee Bars.  Not that this was the only recipe on her page.  Heavens, no.

Cake Mix Toffee Bars




I loved reading about Emily on her About Me page.  She's had a very interesting life, and she's barely 32!  A darling husband and baby round out her family.  I'm with her on this:  steamed lobster, enough said.  Oh, and lobster bisque.

I really want to try these Morning Glory Muffins, too.  I want to say to my family, "help yourself to a morning glory muffin."  It sounds so.... cheerful!  And these:  Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies.  Heavens!  Browned Butter anything...

These Cake Mix Toffee Bars are a great quick treat and for my small family, I tweaked the recipe to use a box of Jiffy Cake mix.  I love these tiny boxes of goodness!
