Oh, how we adore this Holiday Chocolate Toffee recipe! If there was ever a candy that was made for the holiday season, this has got to be right near the top of the list! I would recommend to double or triple the recipe because these sweet treats go very, very fast!
Just to show you how easy it is to whip up this amazing Holiday Chocolate Toffee recipe, we want to invite you into our kitchen as we make a batch!
We just can’t rave enough about this candy. This has been a tradition in my family since I was a young child and now, never a Christmas goes by where I don’t make at least 2 batches.
It’s so much fun to watch the chocolate bars melt right on top of the hot toffee.
Then, all that’s left is to wait a bit for it to harden up, and then time to dig in!
Nothing spells the holidays like tins full of wonderful Christmas candy.
And this Holiday Chocolate Toffee recipe is about as good as they come!
Be sure to leave a few nibbles for Santa!
