I WAS MAKING A VARIETY OF DESSERT'S FOR AN AFTER SERVICE LUNCHEON AT MY COUSIN'S HOUSE. BEING A NUT/PEANUT BUTTER FREE HOUSE, I USED THE PLAIN TOFFEE BIT'S IN PLACE OF THE PECAN'S AND USED MRS. RICHARDSON'S BUTTERSCOTCH CARMEL JAR SAUCE FOR THE TOPPING. THE RAVE'S I RECEIVED WAS OVERWHELMING. I REFERRED EVERYBODY TO YOUR WEBSITE. I SAID, "THEY HAVE THE BEST RECIPE'S." IN FACT, ALL THE THING'S I MADE CAME FROM YOUR WEBSITE. THANK YOU, JOANNE
