To Do Lists and English Toffee

Check, Check, Double Check...things off my to-do list that is! I feel like I have been living the last weeks by my to-do list. I LOVE scratchin' things off it. Blogging has been on the list...sorry it kept getting pushed to the next day! ARG!!! This holiday has been so busy. I think each of us feels busier than ever. What have I been up to since my last post? Orders!!! Last week I made some super cute owl cookies (I will share with you soon), some roll orders, 4 dozen sugar cookies, 2 dozen chocolate chip cookies with candy cane Hersheys Kisses (these were scrumptious! Try adding these kisses to your fav. choc. chip cookie recipe!) , and I made delish treats for a Christmas Party. Every year, Paul and I spend a whole day baking, plating, and delivering cookie plates to our neighbors, friends, and church friends. This year it took two days! We delivered about 35 plates of fudge, sugar cookies, licorice caramels, oreo truffles, chocolate peppermint cupcakes, and peanut butter kiss cookies. It was so fun! Check, check, check that off my list!!
I have a friend whose husbands is obsessed with English Toffee. I made it for him two years ago and ever since...whenever he sees me, he asks, "when you makin' those toffees again...?" Well, this was the year. Happy Birthday Jeff! Hope you enjoyed your gift!

English Toffee


Put in your shopping cart:

1 stick, plus 6 Tab. butter

1 cup sugar

2 Tab. cold water

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1 6 oz. bag choc. chips

Put on your apron and...

Prepare cookie sheet with wax or parchment paper (silicone baking mats also work). Chop nuts now if they are not pre-chopped.

Bring to a boil butter, sugar and water. Stir constantly for about 15 minutes at a rolling boil. Cook to a brittle stage on your candy thermometer 300 to 310 degrees. Remove from heat, add nuts, Add vanilla and salt. Pour onto prepared cookie sheet about 1/4 inch thick. Cool slightly, top with chocolate chips while toffee is still warm. Spread chips as they melt and sprinkle with more nuts. Cool completely and break into pieces.
