This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is an unassuming looking dessert. It’s basically ingredients for a fruit galette rolled up to make a kind of Danish fruity roll – sort of like these Sara Lee treats from my childhood.

Oh dear. I’m in trouble with this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. These Chocolate Covered Toffee Break Ups are the work of an evil genius (yes, Dorie, that’s you!). Ever tasted a Daim Bar?
