“This is the Toffee recipe I've been using for years. My recipe calls for less sugar than most of the other Toffee recipes I found posted, but it is plenty sweet and delicious. I usually double this recipe and make 2-3 batches at Christmas. I am not sure where this recipe came from, but it is one of my most requested treats I make during the holidays.”
