I always make this recipe for gifts at Christmas time for friends and family. I start getting calls around Thanksgiving from people "checking" to see if I am making toffee this year. I also make this toffee to take as a little gift on girl's weekends. Its always a big hit and insures that I always get invited to go along ;)
I am so happy to find this recipe on the internet! I can't find my Land O'Lakes recipe book I have been using for 4 or so years now and it has become a family tradition at Christmas.
