This is a family favorite! I make at least ten batches every Christmas...I give it to friends, bring it to Christmas parties and even keep some for myself. It's an easy candy to make and it's as good as any you will find in any candy shoppe! In fact, I used to LOVE to go to the Candy Shoppe at Disneyland just to buy their English Toffee...they hand make it there every day. Now I can make my own and it is every bit as good as what they sell at Disneyland!

Add your 2nd cup of chopped almonds now and sprinkle on the top of the chocolate.
