Christmas Toffee

These are from December from our female cooking day, but who cares right? The first item of goodness was toffee. Oddly enough the woman who gave my mom this recipe from our ward, died tis weekend. Kind of a coincidence I'm posting it now.

Anyway, Here's the recipe
2 Tbsp Margerine
2 Tbsp Butter
2 C. Sugar
2 Tbsp Water
2 tsp. vanilla

Here's the lovely Michelle cooking away. She was always the one to make the toffee.

Cook all ingredients but vanilla until the mixture becomes "brown paper bag" brown on medium high heat. Off heat, add vanilla.

Miles loved all the attention of two Aunts, Mom and Grandma. He has TEETH!

Pour into buttered pan (that has sides or you're in for a mess)

After a minute or so of setting, plave chunks of milk chocolate on toffee. It's hot enough it will melt from the heat of the toffee.

Take a break while chocolate melts and play with cute nephew bug.

Spread melting chocolate evenly over whole pan

Make fun designs in chocolate!

Miles wanted to test the toffee to make sure it turned out right.
So did Toby.

Sprinkle with chopped almond or walnuts

Now try not to eat the whole pan in one sitting!


  1. ok two things, miles is ADORABLE, and I really hope he got the spoon before toby did......

  2. He is isn't he? And yes, Toby was the last one to have the spoon
