Great recipe! I love that you don't need a candy thermometer. I added the chocolate chips to frost and they turned out perfect. Thanks!

This is great for how easy it is but not outstanding in taste compared to other toffees. I used blanched slivered almonds...I should have thought of toasting them first. Mine was a little burnt tasting at 7 minutes and when poured in the pan there was a greasy butter layer that settled on top. It was also a little softer than regular toffee. I think I prefer using my candy thermometer instead of guess work. Overall though we ate it all! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
