Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Well, our first attempt SUCKED!!! It separated, burned, and smoked! But we are at 6,800 ft elevation and are using Propane to cook with! We did not take these factors into account when we tried it the first time. Propane seems to burn hotter then natural gas. Our second try was much better! Here is what we did different: --I softened the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. --Added the sugar, salt and 1 tsp vanilla before turning on the flame. --Once I saw the butter starting to melt, I started to whisk it continuously until it was combined and starting to bubble. --We used a medium/low heat to start with and lowered it to low to allow it to come up to temperature SLOWLY! --We heated it to 300F and followed the rest of the recipe (chocolate & nuts) --We took it outside and placed the pan in the snow, cooling it quickly. RESULTS? PRETTY GOOD! Still not perfect but we will attempt it again soon.
