      Instructions

      1. Place all ingredients in food processor and blend! I often put the toffee in first to blend into a fine sugar and then add in rest of ingredients. I use an 11c food processor. If needed, blend chocolate chips and toffee and then mix in other ingredients in a large bowl. 1/2c of mix works for a large mug, but find the serving size that works for you! Store in air tight container.
