Started making this in the 1960s and have not stopped. I do not remember where I got the original recipe but I think from one of my grandmother's many dishes. They were both great cooks.

As with making any candy stirring and watching the candy thermometer is a bit labor-intensive, but so worth it. You definitely taste the love. This is a little softer than the average toffee and the almonds add a nice crunch. The toffee would make a great holiday gift! The Test Kitchen
