"Unbelievably good! Made this for my nephews 10th birthday today, and it was a hit, seconds for everyone! As most of the kids are missing one or more teeth, I used crushed Oreo's and Chips Ahoy (choc. chip cookies) in place of the nuts and toffee. Very good, 3 years old to Grandma all approved!"

"Awesome recipe! Took it to a Super Bowl party and the hostess asked to keep what was left! Made a second one for at home as it was nice to keep in the freezer for a quick dessert or snack! It looks like it was very time consuming and only took about 10 min. to make! Thank you for sharing."
