I love giving homemade Christmas gifts when possible, and this English Toffee is a great example. I made the candy as a thank you to my dental assistants for keeping me afloat for the past 6 months. Making candy is sometimes scary, because you have to be very precise, but all in all this recipe was very easy and required very few ingredients. I didn't mix pecans into the toffee itself, as per the recipe, but did sprinkle the top with toasted almonds. I think it looks much prettier this way. I gave about half to the assistants, and made myself sick eating most of the remainder... in one sitting.
