“This is good toffee. Not the 'stick to your teeth' kind. I made this for Christmas. Be sure and test the candy thermometer before using by bringing water to a boil. The candy thermometer should read 212 farenheit. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on the test. I got this recipe from Taste of Home.”
