Peanut Butter Chocolate Toffee

We've gotten into what might be a bad habit. All three of us enjoy it when there's something a little more exciting than a handful of chocolate chips for dessert. However, I don't always have the time {or desire} to keep cookies around. Enter Peanut Butter Chocolate Toffee.
It takes about 10 minutes of active work, less than 30 minutes total and produces something wonderful. The combination of salt, peanut butter and chocolate is just divine, as one would expect. So while chocolate chips have their place Peanut Butter Chocolate Toffee definitely wins the battle between the two!
