  • “I love toffee and this is a great recipe.Easy to put together and even easier to eat!!Thanks for posting.”

  • “Yummy, easy, it makes a bunch.”

  • “This recipe is fantastic!It was incredibly easy to put together and had that light, pleasant crunch that is English toffee.I was put off by the amount of butter, but decided anything with that much butter in it had to be good.I grated an 8-oz. Hershey’s bar and combined that with finely chopped walnuts to put on both sides of the candy.This one definitely goes into my Ts&T collection.”

  • “I made a bunch of this for Christmas and it each batch came out delicious!!! Thanks so much!!”

  • “Wonderful toffee, made this as part of my christmas baking and love it.I did add a tsp. of vanilla to the butter sugar mixture and instead of grating the chocolate bar and placing the nuts on the cookie sheet I poured the toffee into a greased and foiled 9X13 pan and then pour a bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips over the top and pressed them in with my hand then poured the walnuts over that and pressed the walnuts in with my hand also.I looked lovely and tasted even better.Thank you for the great and easy recipe.”

  • “This is a great recipe. This was my first time making it and it turned out delicious. Love it, very easy to put together. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe. Very yummy…”

  • “I love this recipe.It takes about 12 minutes to get the mixture up to temperature–so be patient. My daughter and I ate the whole batch in about 3 days.You might want to get it out of the house before you become addicted.”

  • “This recipe was very easy. I am new to making candy and thank goodness I had a candy thermometer! Everyone loved and it and it is disappearing quickly!!”

  • “This is the best toffee recipe I’ve found.It’s nice and crunchy and very tasty.I used unsalted butter, so I added 1 teaspoon of salt, which was just about right.I also stirred in some toasted sliced almonds right after I took the toffee off the heat.”

  • “Great tasting!!!Love it and the whole family loves it.Thanks for putting this recipe out there!!”
