Blue Ribbon Recipe

Toffee is a yummy snack. Its buttery, nutty flavor just melts in your mouth. In this recipe, homemade toffee coats popcorn. Then, it's drizzled with sweet and smooth white chocolate bringing this treat to a new level. We love the festiveness the green food coloring brings. You could customize the colors based on different holidays, a favorite color, school colors, etc. The options are endless!
