English Toffee

Candy recipes can be quite complicated. Often you have to use a candy thermometer to bring the mixture to just the right temperature, cook just the perfect amount of time, and even pay attention to the weather.  Some recipes fail if the humidity is too high! Talk about fussy!

Fortunately, there are SO many great recipes that are truly fuss-free.  This toffee is one of those.  With just four ingredients and 15 minutes or so, you can have a super delicious candy that friends & family will love!
