Ys English Toffee

Recipe by Ycooks2

I get more requests for this candy than any other I make for the holidays. Not sure where I got the recipe because I have been making it so long. This recipe takes alot of stirring but worth every minute.

Delicious!! This is a wonderful English toffee recipe. I make an English toffee that has been a family favorite for many years, but this recipe is much quicker, easier and very yummy! I used blanched, chopped almonds for the nuts and it turned out perfect. Thank you for sharing this fabulous recipe...it is definitely a keeper!! **Made for PAC Spring 2013**
