Brown Sugar Brickle Bars

I love Heath Bars.  Well let me clarify.  I love the center of the Heath Bars.  Don't tell anyone, but I could actually live without the chocolate on the outside.  I wish Dobby the Elf from Harry Potter lived here and could scrape the chocolate off of Heath Bars for me.  You can purchase Heath Bar Bits at the store, by the chocolate chips.   And those are good in a lot of recipes, but nothing beats just the toffee bits without the chocolate.  Usually around the holidays I can find Heath brand Brickle Bits which are just the toffee bits!  No chocolate!  Too bad they are pretty small and kind of hard to eat out of the bag.  I always stock up on these because I love recipes that call for "brickle bits."  These Brown Sugar Brickle Bars are so gooey and rich.  The little crunchy brickle bits are the ultimate in this recipe.  Be sure and cut them small. OR don't. Cut them big and serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream as a reader on Facebook suggested.  

Here are the brickle bits.  See???
