Reviews for Almond Toffee
"This does not deserve even one star, waste of money and time. Someone needs to look into this recipe at Taste of Home, do not get hard at all, so mad"
"ok its hours later-I won't make this again-too sweet, all we taste is sugary sweet, no snap from typical toffee, I'm sorry to report this but it won't go to work tomorrow nor will the coconut snowballs from this link either-disappointed lady here"
"Wow! Super easy & oh so tasty! I melted the butter, added 1 1/2 c sugar & 1/2 c brown sugar, corn syrup & water. I took it up to nearly 300 degrees, waiting until it was a rich light brown color. I pored it over chopped pecans. Waited 5 minutes, then laid the chocolate on top to melt. I then sprinkled about 1/2 tsp sea salt on the chocolate. I crushed another 1/2 c of pecans in a bag and sprinkled them on top after spreading the chocolate. Too bad I'm giving this batch away. Too easy not to make another batch, tho! Highly recommend!"
"DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR INGREDIENTS ON THIS. THE RECIPE IS NOT RIGHT!! THEY SHOULD REPRINT IT WITH THE RIGHT INSTRUCTIONS."
"Looks like the Better Homes & Gardens version from the 50's. That is good stuff!The instructions in that old cookbook are much more clear and complete."
