I've been making this "English Toffee" for over 30 years. Every Christmas, family and friends receive a container in a pretty Christmas plate or bowl! They all love it! This version is slightly different than the one I received in 1980 but it is absolutely delicious and one of my family's favorites!

I've been making this for years but living in the deep South, I have to wait for cooler days when the humidity here is low. Today is one of those days and I can hardly wait till it's cooled. This recipe is a treasure.

I made this toffee 2 Christmas's ago when I needed an extra touch for cookie gifts. Now it's a part of my holiday baking. This is sooooo easy and is absolutely delicious. Everybody raves about the delicious buttery taste plus can't imagine that I could be making candy and having it turn out so good. When I took some into work, one guy said "will you make me a batch, I can't get enough of it". A great recipe for people in a hurry!

this is a family favorite at Christmastime. it seemed to take longer than the recipe indicated for the candy mixture to reach the hard brittle stage. sometimes i will add some crushed nuts to the chocolate topping as an added treat.
