This is my favorite candy. If you like a Heath bar, this is even better. I have had this recipe for over 20 years and have no idea where it came from. I make it nearly every year for Christmas.

I used to buy toffee from the store, and this reminds me so much of what I used to buy.

This would be great served at a holiday party. Or eaten with a cup of coffee or some mulled cider. Loved the buttery aroma while making this. The Test Kitchen
