    Chef Dee's Note:

    This is the best toffee I have ever tasted. It is a popular item at the Christmas Farmer's Market here,with just 4 ingredients it's easy to make. We prefer to decrease the cooking time slightly for a softer toffee.

      Just made this for Christmas baking. Was very good. I wanted a soft and chewy toffee like Mackintosh toffee I grew up with, so after reading reviews I decided to test my toffee as I was cooking I dropped a bit in water every so often and used a brand new candy thermometer. When it got to 240 degrees it was just perfect. My daughter and I agree. It wasn't quite as flavourful as I would like and next time I may add some vanilla extract or some butterscotch flavoring just to boost the flavor a bit but all in all, this recipe is going in my book of go to recipes

      This had great flavor, but I had a little trouble with the end product. Mine was hard as a rock, but I'm thinking my candy thermometer is bad. I'm still rating this a 4-star because the flavor was outstanding and again, I'm thinking it was my equipment. I plan on making this again when I purchase a new thermometer. Thank you for posting.
