I've been making this toffee at Christmas time for years. My best friend Jane gave me the original version when we first met some 30 years ago--where does the time go! It's been a family favorite ever since...

Have made this toffee many times now I've never had a bath of fat suggest it may have been the cook not the recipe it's awesome and now all friends & family want at Christmas and Birthdays! Try it you won't be disappointed - 23 Dec 2013
This truly is wonderful stuff-I think it just may be responsible for the 5 extra lbs. I manage to gain every Christmas!! It's really so easy to make and give as gifts. Your friends and family will love you for it!! - 09 Nov 2009
Twice as much fat as is needed. Creates a small amount of toffee in a bath of fat. We had to pour off the fat to salvage it. Compare it to any other recipe and you'll see! Avoid. - 10 Nov 2013
