"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!"
"This is my first time making toffee and it was wonderful! Very easy to make and sooooo tasty. Had to immediately take most of it to work so we wouldn't eat it all. Thank You!"
"I love english toffee, but have never tried making it before. This recipe is great, easy and delicious!! Gonna try another couple batches tomorrow-one with sliced almonds, another with chopped walnuts! Also not using the white chocolate-hate it! Thank you so much!"
"So yummy! I know that I won't be able to make this one too often because it is way too easy to whip up and we don't have the willpower to stay out of it!"
"mmmmmmm yummy....this is habit forming....a definate 5 star recipe...I just don't know how this could ever get out the door for gift-giving, a person would just eat it up before giving it away, it's THAT good!... made it just as the recipe stated (I doubled the recipe), didn't change anything else...very easy to make, just what I like, I will for sure be making this for my upcoming December Christmas house party...great recipe Kitchen Queen...thanxs (I'm wondering if it would be just as good with walnuts?)"
