Expert Tips

*3 oz vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark) can be substituted; chop into 1/4-inch pieces.

When it comes to making toffee, a cool dry day is best. Both heat and humidity can affect the candy.

Wrap up this yummy toffee in a festive mug, tin or cellophane bag for a memorable holiday gift.
