Chocotoffee Brownies

Submitted by Crafty Cookie 11 June 2009

Store in an airtight container. It is best to bring them up to room temperature before eating. If wishing to freeze them plave the brownies in a rigid container and keep for up to 3 months at -18 degrees centigrade. To defrost leave in the fridge or at room temperature, they do not microwave properly. Devon toffees are the best variety to use, but otherwise any soft toffee will suffice.
