Heath Bar Pecan Pie
*1 cup Karo dark corn syrup
*1 cup sugar
*2 tablespoons butter-melted
*1 teaspoon vanilla extract
*2 cups pecan pieces
*1 unbaked pie crust
(for Gluten-Free- use a GF crust~I use Whole Foods Gluten Free Pie Crust)
*1/2 bag (8 ounces) Heath Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits
Add 1/4 of the bag to the bottom of the pie crust, put in half your pecan pie mixture.
Add another 1/4 of the bag on top of that and add the rest of the pecan pie mixture.
Bake as usual.
We went to a tree lighting last night in the Historic Marietta Square. It was loads of fun, we actually had cold temps here in the ATL! Scarves, gloves and hats were necessary! How exciting! I leave you with a few pictures of The Husband, my daughter, Stephanie and Baby Ellie and I making merry!
Santa came into the square on a firetruck!
This is the stage where several school choirs sang!
We are Southerners and we bundle up when the temps aren’t in the 50’s!
Before the tree lighting we ducked into a fun little shop on the square to get warm!
A bench right in front of the tree opened up so we snuggled in to sip hot chocolate and wait!
Stephie and Ellie get an up close and personal look at the tree…which may have needed a few more ornaments!
But for Ellie…it was a wonder!
Don’t ya love twinkling snowflakes adorning light posts in small towns!?
And the tree lit up! (It could have used a few hundred more lights I think! Maybe the recession is to blame!)
Ellie was under impressed! Yaaawn.
Have a warm and cozy weekend Peeps…there’s a “Wintry-Mix” predicted for The ATL on Saturday. I’m off to buy milk and bread like everyone else in Metro Atlanta! It’s what we do in the South!
