Last week, one of my sisters, Margaret, came to visit. We went on a baking rampage and in the process, made this toffee. I have to say, we both have a raging sweet tooth and luckily this was the cure…for now, at least! 😉
The apple flavor is ever so subtle and the toffee just melts in your mouth along side the chocolate. It was our first attempt at making toffee, so be prepared like us, for your eyes to open a little wider at all the butter and sugar!
I’m so sorry for the lack of health in this recipe, but I’m afraid there was just no going back once we melted that butter! Haha. I hope you enjoy this super easy and quick recipe!
