SUPER EASY way to make you own Heath Bars!!!

Top Review by Tinkerbell

This was a really easy recipe, and it tastes delicious! Even DH, who doesn't usually eat candies, loved it. My toffee was looking just perfect until I poured it into the baking pan, where it began to separate a little bit. My stirring and thermometer were okay, but I might try a stainless steel pan next time to help regulate the heat. Also, there is no salt in the recipe, and no specifics on salted or unsalted butter, so I used unsalted (cause it's what was handy), but next time I'll use the salted butter, and hopefully that will help avoid separation. Even with a little butter floating on top of the toffee the chocolate still spread neatly, and it tastes wonderful. We'll be making this again come holiday time, or the next time I need Heath bars for a dessert. Thanks for sharing, MizzNezz! Made & enjoyed in support of your courageous fight. Fight Like A Girl!
