Microwave Pecan Toffee

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Cook4theFamily

Very easy, every day ingredients and quick. I believe the recipe said you could use pecans or almonds, but there are plenty of almond toffe recipes and besides, I like pecan toffee! I got this recipe from a cookbook, but can't remember the one. I have made this many times for work parties, christmas presents, bake sales and family. Everyone loves it!

This is a very good and very easy recipe. I used the milk chocolate chips and the chocolate (after spreading) did not harden until I put the pan in the refrigerator (and not sure it would stay hard after removing from refrigerator). It might have been the brand I used. Next time I will definitely use the semi sweet chocolate chips to eliminate that. Thank you for a great microwave recipe for quick candy!
