    My favorite candy bar has always been the Heath English Toffee Bar. I've been trying to duplicate this recipe but to no avail. I just need to recipe for the toffee itself. Does anyone have a recipe for a good "English Toffee" type candy? :lips: :lips: :lips:

    Thanks

    Steve,
    This is the recipe I've used for 40 years

    1 1/4 C granulated sugar
    3/4 C butter-not oleo
    1/2 t salt
    1/4 C water
    1/2 t baking soda
    1 C chopped nuts
    1 LG. Hershey Bar shredded

    Cook first five ingredients to 290*
    Stir in soda and 1/2 C nuts
    Pour into 15"X10" pan. Spread with grated chocolate and sprinkle with
    remaining nuts. Cool and crack.
    Yield 1 1/2 pounds
    Mmmmmmmmmm. So GOOD!

    well I guess it's time to try a new recipe and this one looks like it'd be good.

    thanks for posting it, will report back after it's done.

    realize now I never made this. got away from me but time to get this accomplished as my stash now = a couple of tablespoons of crumbs. (my hint is to crush even more and incorporate into various frostings or batters).
    love it when all ingredients are here.
