    Kitchen Queen's Note:

    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!

      Wow...this stuff is really good! My mom loves English toffee and I decided to make some for her using this recipe; I am completely inexperienced at making candy, so I was a little concerned that it wouldn't turn out right. I followed the directions exactly except it took a lot longer than 7 minutes to reach 300 degrees on my candy thermometer (about 20 minutes on medium-medium high heat). I used almonds instead of pecans just because of personal preference and it turned out perfect! Thanks for a great recipe!

      I thought I rated this recipe! I've been making it since it was posted. I make this every Christmas to give as gifts and everyone loves it. It's so easy to make and looks very pretty. I do make mine a little different. I make the toffee part (sometimes with stick margarine and it's still good) and then spread on melted chocolate. Then I sprinkle slivered almonds over the chocolate. Next, I drizzle with the white chocolate and then drizzle with more chocolate and a few more slivered almonds. It has to look very pretty before I stop these steps. LOL~ I'm making them again for my DS's girlfriend before she heads off to college. Her family loves this toffee! I make a double batch and it turns out great. I do let it sit in the frig overnight to set up nicely. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
