This was good and easy to make.
This is the same as mine which I have been making for over twenty more years. The only thing that I do is if using nuts I toast then place them onto my buttered pan and then pour the cooked butter/sugar mixture on top of them. I also now do not butter my jelly roll pan but put a sill pat on it ,pour it directly on top of the nuts, cools and comes off oh so easy. I use the sillpat for sponge toffee too, or peanut brittle. Great recipe.
This recipe is great. It is so fast and easy, and the results are addicting. I get amused when reviews tell of the changes a person made in a recipe, although I do it all the time. I didn't have slivered almonds so I attempted chopped almonds. The results were not positive. Tasted great, but didn't turn out like it should have. I tried it with cashew halves, and that was great. I tried it with small peanut halves, and that worked great, too.
