Easy Toffee

4 ingredient easy & amazing toffee recipe!
I love making sweets that can be made on a whim, like those that require just a few minutes and only staple ingredients.  I learned this toffee recipe in an elementary school cooking class and have been making it from memory ever since.  It doesn’t get any easier {or better}! I’m always receiving special requests for it. You’d never guess the secret that lies beneath the chocolate and brown sugar layers.

    Visiting from Tatertots and Jello. This looks amazing! and toffee is one of my all time favs. I have always been too afraid to try to make it though. Maybe I’ll give it a shot? You have made me a hungry girl ;) Hope your weekend is fantastic.
