    Perfect Almond Toffee! I always make at least 3 batches every year during the holidays. No one can stay out of it! I recommend using a pan larger than 9x9 as it needs more room to spread out. I used several different size pans this year and using the 9x9 pan made it too thick. KCShell

    I have made something very similar for a few years and just had to try your version (very minor differences). Easy to make and just wonderful. Great for gifts - if there is any left! My DH's all time favorite for Christmas. I will be making lots more. Thanks for posting!

    This was fairly easy to make, although step 7 was a little confusing to me. It went together well, smelled wonderful and even looked pretty.It is VERY sweet, though. All in all, it's a very nice recipe that makes a great holiday presentation. Thank you!
