Almond Toffee Bites (Gluten Free/ Dairy Free/)

The other evening we had friends over for dinner. I put goodies out for dessert and everyone especially loved my  chocolate crunch   bars. My friend told me about a bar that her mom would make with bran flakes and corn syrup on the bottom, then topped with melted chocolate and crunchie peanutbutter.
I started brain storming, and this is my version. You can make yours with peanut butter, but I used almond butter so that my grand daughter can eat them.

I cut these into triangles but you can also cut them into squares.

Store them covered in the fridge for up to two weeks, or in the freezer.

These are So popular that I don’t even bring them out of the freezer that often. 🙂

They disappear very quickly!!
