I remember during our dating days, my husband and I would often go to the mall. Our tradition was to stop by See’s Candies and grab a chocolate or two, followed by a run to the coffee shop and enjoy them together. One of the chocolates was always their Toffee-ette cups (2 toffee bites). Now we have kids and don’t go out as much, so I couldn’t help but remember about our dating tradition as I was making my own Toffee. I guess for a moment I felt like Mrs. See’s herself…
Toffee is probably the easiest candy that one could make with no special equipment (other than, may be the thermometer). Read on, and you be the judge!
