Growing up, I always made my dad brickle brownies for a Christmas gift. Times were always a bit tight, homemade gifts made up the bulk of what was under our tree. Even though Dad is no longer in the picture (having returned to Family #2, us being Family #3), I still crave making those at the holidays. The recipe wasn't fancy, or even out of a cookbook - it came off the bag of Heath Toffee Bits. Just my luck, the first year I try to make them since Dad exited - the recipe is no longer on the bag. After searching online, I finally hit pay dirt....or toffee crumbs in my case. I just can't wait to make these....
