Recipe by Kitchen Queen
This candy is out of this world! A holiday tradition...also freezes well and makes a great gift. Doubles well, too (trust me, you'll need it).

Great recipe Kitchen Queen! I used a candy thermometer and it took about 20 minutes to reach 300 degrees. I doubled the recipe with no problems. I didn't put my chocolate chips on for about 5 minutes after pouring boiling mixture in my pan, so that the toffee could set up a little. Also roasted my almonds and pecans at 350 degrees for about 6 mintues and made half a batch of each. Put in refrigerator to set. Delicious! DH was very impressed. Thanks again!
