Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Stir occasionally and gently with a wooden spoon until mixture reaches 260 to 265F. Continue cooking, stirring as few times as possible, until mixture reaches 300F. Stirring too much contributes to toffee separating. It is important to keep the mixture from burning, so stir gently once in a while. Store butter toffee in a container with tight-fitting lid in a cool, dry place. Do not refrigerate.
