This brings back warm memories of Christmas time at my grandparents with all the women-folk in the kitchen making goodies. This recipe is as good today as it was back then!

This is superb! We love toffee! I didn't add the nuts due to family taste but this is super easy. On the second part of the chocolate chips, I did have to stick them in the oven for a little bit to get them warmed up more but other than they the recipe went great!! Thanks, Puppitypup, for the great recipe! Made for Potluck Game
