I decided on toffee for the cookie exchange this year.
This was plan B. Plan A fell through when the molasses jar ran short in mid baking. This was my first attempt making toffee and even though there were a few mishaps in the process of making 6 batches much was learned … as is often the case.
6 pounds of butter, 12 cups of sugar, a shake or two of salt, 6 bags of chocolate chips, and a few nuts was all it took.
Last night I said that I wouldn’t likely be making anymore toffee but now in the light of the day it doesn’t seem like such a bad idea … as often is the case.
