Blue Ribbon Recipe

Toffee is a yummy snack. It's buttery, nutty flavor just melts in your mouth. Drizzling sweet and smooth white chocolate over it, brings this toffee to a new level. We love the festiveness the green food coloring brings to this delicious treat. You could customize the colors based on different holidays, a favorite color, school colors, etc. The options are endless!
