"Toffee was easy to make and taste very good. I think that there was too much butter as I made it once before and t was very greases and I thought it was because I butter the pan to much so this time I did not and it has too much butter on it you have to wipe the toffee off before you eat it. I may try again and use less butter I hope it works as I don't want to waste the ingredients."

"Very easy and lots of compliments. Don't have a candy thermometer so cooked until light brown and checked for hard crack by dropping a bit into cold water. I used a whole package of dark bittersweet chocolate chips and 1 cup of finely chopped pecans which I pressed lightly into the chocolate. Delicious and addictive!!"

"This was very easy and very good. However, I think there was a mix up in the measurements for the chocolate chips and the pecans. No way was 1 cup of chips enough to cover all that toffee generously and the 1 1/2 cups of pecans called for would be far to overwhelming, for my taste anyway. Next time I think I will switch the measurements on those 2 items and also melt the chocolate chips before I put them on the toffee. Much easier to spread that way."
