DAY #10 ENGLISH TOFFEE

Toffee candy is another staple that everyone loves to make or purchase for the holidays. I like it rich, buttery and smooth. This toffee is topped with a coating of chocolate, toasted walnuts and has a delicate crunch. Don’t be afraid to make this delectable candy.  English toffee is easy and doesn’t require a lot of time to make.

Ingredients

2 cups sugar

  • Butter a 15 x 10 inch jellyroll pan.
  • Put first 4 ingredients in a medium size heavy saucepan.
