    What is toffee? Toffee is one of the holiday’s most time honored traditions. Butter and sugar simmered to an amber glow and then cooled to crunchy deliciousness. Basically hardened caramel. I took traditional toffee up one notch by adding candy!

    For some people, toffee is a main part of their holiday traditions. This Candy Toffee recipe changes the toffee game by throwing in an unexpected surprise, a butterfinger candy bar!

    Who would have thought by adding one simple thing I would end up with a whole other delicious recipe?!

     

    Although toffee is a simple recipe, many have trouble with the actual preparation. Butter and sugar will separate if not continually stirred.

    This process can take up 15-20 minutes. A pinch of salt with stabilize the mixture, but not to the point where stirring is not required.

    Unlike caramel, that has a very distinct no stirring instruction. After some time, the butter will brown and the sugar will caramelize resulting in an amber color. A great tip to remember is to use a wooden spoon to prevent sticking or melting.

    NESTLÉ® Butterfinger is toffee-like but actually made with peanuts (and sugar and butter, of course.) So really Candy Toffee is layered toffee, chocolate and more peanut toffee. Delicious!

    You can use whatever NESTLÉ® Stand Up Bags you want like Crunch Bars or Raisinets. I got all of the ingredients I needed at Dollar General, including a Digiorno Pizza so I could focus on my baking and not dinner!
