Try any nut you like! Gift giving. Serving depends on how large or small you break the Toffee.I used Hershey's chips. You can use any chips you favor.

Fabulous flavor - my first time making candy and it wasn't as bad as I thought! Everyone loved this - I think I want to try it with butterscotch chips next on one side to compliment the chocolate - the cinnamon was a delightful pairing!! Thanks for a terrific recipe, Rita!!
