Pecan Toffee

    this is the best recipe I have found for toffee- my thermometer broke right before I started- so I didn't use it. Once it came to a boil- I stirred constantly- and allowed to bubble for exactly 12 minutes- I don't even know what the final temperature was... but it turned out to be incredible- foolproof and simple.

    This recipe is an essential one, in my recipe box; especially for any holiday treat! For ease and timeliness , I use my microwave to make the toffee, stirring it after every minutes on high heat . I substitute 1 cup choc chips ( you can use any variety to change up the results !) Sometimes I add chopped dried apricots, or crushed peppermint candies on the top! YUMMMMMMY!

    This recipe is awesome for two reasons: taste and presentation! I've never made anything that requires a candy thermometer, so I had no idea how it would turn out. It turned out perfect! I made 2 batches: one with milk chocolate and one with white chocolate. Both were great. Everyone raved over how delicious it was!!!

    made this for the family they loved it and then made other batch to give out as gifts and everyone wanted more. We could not stop eating it!

    Very disappointed in how this turned out. I planned to bring this to my mother's birthday party tomorrow, and followed the instructions precisely. I did not have a candy themometer, but boiled for 12 minutes, stirring constantly. It turned out like fudge. I wasted nearly $20.00 in ingredients. Extremely disappointed.

    Great pecan toffee. Giving it for gifts this year. HINT: Buy a good candy therometer. You can't judge candy by how long you've cooked it or the color. Altitude and humidity will both affect the cooking time.
