Let me start by saying I am not a candy maker...but a WANNABE! The first time I tried the recipe, it was horrible...So like a good girl I came back and read the reviews...if first you don't succeed! I think the reason I had a hard time was that I hooked the candy thermometer to the pan, and received a false reading (as the first batch didn't get hard) SO...this time I held the thermometer, and also used the ice water idea that was suggested. I omitted the chocolate this time, and went with the nuts (JUST in case it didn't turn out) Well....I am SWELLED with pride! I turned out PERFECT (I burned the pan but who's counting THAT??) and it was the BEST toffee I've ever had, and my MOTHER IN LAW SAID SO TOO! Next time (maybe later today) I'll melt the chocolate on top as well...Thank you to EVERYONE for all the helpful hints! I feel like a REAL candy maker (for at least the moment)!
