This recipe is from Cooks.com.  The only change I made was adding a handful of walnuts (although I think I might also add extra sunflower seeds in the next batch).

I was looking for a recipe for “Kilkenny Bread”, it was a wonderfully delicious bread that my mom used to buy at the Farmer’s Market in Syracuse, NY.  If anyone has a recipe PLEASE send it.  I think if this bread was a little sweeter and had a little cinnamon added it might be a close approximation.

The millet makes it nice and crunchy.  You can tell the kids it’s birdseed bread 🙂

Did I Mention Toffee?

TOFFEE!

I’m going to make toffee again soon, but next time I will make all of the scrollwork and flowers in chocolate as well.  The back is also coated with a thick layer of dark chocolate (of course!).  The technique I used for making the chocolate butterflies was the same as in the directions for a chocolate cake topper, (also Video Here) but the second layer was toffee instead of a contrasting color of chocolate.  I’ll make this again soon and include photos, a recipe and instructions.

It was incredibly delicious; crunchy at first, then meltingly buttery and chocolatey.  Very satisfying – but you you won’t be able to stop eating it!
