I so love chocolate & toffee... love love love them :) I make this snack cake often but usually don't put the toffee... then I was thinking I wanna jazz this up and in the cupboard I looked and toffee Heath bars... bingo.. that was it...( I buy the ones with chocolate and toffee they do sell just the toffee bits but again I LOVE CHOCOLATE)...
I make lots of versions of this cake...
Chocolate peanutbutter snack cake
I leave out the toffee & chocolate chips (and cinnamon) and add 1/2 cup melted peanut butter (I melt it for 30 seconds in the microwave) and then I sprinkle on peanut butter chips on the top...
I have put white & chocolate chips on the top (I leave out the toffee chips)
I have left out the toffee and added nuts and coconut to the batter and sprinkled the top with chocolate chips, nuts and coconut... (watch the coconut it can burn easily) I usually cover it with foil the last 10 minutes of baking when I add coconut to the cake.
Sometimes I really go crazy and add more toffee Heath bars and chocolate chips to the batter and on top... I have added cut up candy bars to this cake anything goes...use what you like... enjoy
