Day 15: Fudgey Chocolate Chip-Toffee Bars

Today we got to meet Dan. The brother of the guy from yesterday. His brother said he was grouchy but he wasn't. He had a cool handlebar stye mustache that extended about 4 inches past his chin. He's been at his place for about 10 years now. He eats cookies too, that makes me happy, because some people don't.
Today was another bar recipe from Pillsbury. It was good, but I don't know if I would make it again. I like the smore's ones better.
*This makes a lot of bars..luckily I got to take most of them to a primary meeting, and the few leftover were for our delivery and tummies. So you might want to wait until you have something to take these babies to.

1/2 cup LAND O LAKES Butter, melted
2 cups graham cracker crumbs(32 squares)
1 bag (8 oz.) HEATH Bits 'O Brickle Toffee Bits(about 1-1/2 cups)
