I have a lot of different names for Totoro at this point in our relationship. Here are a few choice favorites: Kitty Face, Kitty Pie {a variation on 'cutie pie'}, MFKittyTime {she enjoys watching MFPallyTime play Heroes of the Storm. Hey, I can't make this stuff up!} and Sweet Girl. I reserve the last one for times when she is not crying, quite dramatically, for food. Typically mere minutes after she has been fed. I swear, this cat never stops eating. Kind of like someone else I know...

Anyhow, the Sweet Girl name has a new meaning, beyond being lovey, that we've recently discovered: This cat has one heck of a sweet tooth! I need to keep my eyes on her like a hawk, because she is sneaking bits of human food left and right when I'm not paying close enough attention. Today's recipe, in particular, called out to her. How do I know? Because I found her, butt in the air and face in the sink, happily eating the leftovers from the sauce pan . Sneaky Girl is going to get added to the list of names, before long.

So what's tasty enough that it must be protected from inquiring kitty mouths? Toffee thins! They're delicate and chewy {like a cross between toffee and caramel, really} with a buttery mouthfeel and a sprinkling of coconut on top. I am mere moments from drooling just from typing this. Here, you go watch the video and I'm gonna eat just one, or two or three, more of these!


  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp corn syrup
  • 6 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  1. Add the butter, brown sugar and corn syrup to a pan. Cook over very low heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. You don't want the mixture to boil!
  2. Remove from heat. Stir in the flour until well incorporated, then mix in the lemon juice.
  3. Drop by the tablespoon onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle coconut on top of each toffee thin.
  4. Cook at 350°F for 10 minutes.
  5. Let cool for 30 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

You can store these bad boys in a sealed container in the refrigerator for a week. But they won't last that long. ;-)
