Chocolate Covered English Toffee with Pecans

Kelly Williams


Christmas at our house would not be the same without homemade toffee! It's so easy to make yet seems to be becoming a lost art. People go crazy for it, and I love to watch their eyes roll back and close, their smiles and the yummy sounds they make when they take their first bite! Priceless!! ;)
