 I found out about Saltine toffee bark last January while attending a birthday party in San Francisco. The folks throwing the party are restaurateurs, and they are total foodies. This family had baked these delectable toffee treats as a gift for us. This toffee bark was such a hit, that the big tin was consumed by my family within a few days. I asked for the recipe, and decided to try it out for myself. I was surprised at how easy it was to make.

Warning – these are so good, that you will have to limit yourself to only a few pieces a day!

We promise you will live through the experience, and your child will be just fine. With a lot of diligence, calm nerves and an abundance of patience, your child will be able to say goodbye to pacifiers forever!

When my daughter Violet was a toddler, I remember worrying about conquering this milestone. She absolutely loved her Schnullie (German word for pacifier), and I knew that parting with it was going to be a big task! My son never took to a binky (a blanket was his comfort item of choice), so I had no prior experience with this sort of thing!
