MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2014

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!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 9, 2011

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.
