National English Toffee Day - January 8th

English Toffee Day is January 8th. A buttery, sugary candy topped with nuts, this is dangerous stuff to have around (especially if your husband doesn't like it, forcing you to eat it all). Not sure what English toffee tastes like? If you've eaten a Heath candy bar, it tastes like that.

My husband's paternal grandmother shared this recipe with me:

Easy Heath Bars

1 1/4 C. butter or margarine
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C chopped pecans (optional)
Soda crackers [saltines]
1 12 oz pkg. milk chocolate chips

Line jelly roll pan and butter it. Line pan completely with soda crackers. Boil butter and brown sugar for 1 minute. Pour over crackers. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Immediately cover with chocolate chips and spread smooth. Cool; cut or break into squares.
“When I put in nuts, I sprinkle them over the crackers before pouring on the syrup. Good and Easy.”

Available at Amazon.
