Personal Notes:
Toffee was always my favorite Christmas treat people brought--if we got any I would hide it! I finally learned how to make it when I discovered the wonders of a candy thermometer. It takes all the guess work out, and the toffee turns out great every time. Now I don't have to wait for someone to bring it to me!
