Yep Tamy, my thoughts exactly... YUM!!

It reminded me that I have not even started my toffee this year... I am so behind this Christmas.

I made this today and all I can say is YUMMMMMMMMY. I had to finally hide it from hubby, he was making himself sick, but that's a good thing - it means it was really good!

So I went to make a second batch and and didn't have enough semi-sweet chocolate and ended up being out of pecans. I substituted butterscotch chips to make up the balance and crushed walnuts and everyone seemed to love it. Thanks for turning me onto this recipe.

Shouldn't that say "Break up and HIDE in cool dark dry place"?

Man this looks good! No, I'm not going to make it. I have no willpower and Jeff isn't a chocolate fan. Guess who'd be eating it?

Sounds totally fab though!

Store... hide... same difference ;)

you could make a tiny batch with just a quarter cup of chocolate chips to try :)
