"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."

    I made this for my husband who wanted soft bonfire toffee for Guy Fawkes night. I changed the quarter cup of corn syrup to half molasses and half golden syrup. It was excellent!

    I have just made this after I tried making fudge, which didn't turn out too well, so I added half the fudge to this recipie , which made a softer toffee. I am very pleased with the result.

    I'm going to have to try this, but for those who complain about the hardness, that's one of the things I remember most about MacIntosh Toffee. Half the fun was having to smash and bash it to pieces to be able to eat it. The soft squishy stuff that's marketed today as MacIntosh Toffee has about half the taste as the original.
