Toffee floating near the 12 Apostles, Port Campbell Nat'l Park, Australia
The color of the cooked toffee mix is good on missamy's pictures so that's what I went by. However, I didn't let mine get quite as dark, but almost. Mine did NOT smoke, but I did close the bedroom doors with the smoke detectors just in case! I also used medium high heat, not high heat. I only made 1/4 of the original recipe (but almost a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips) and put it in a 8 x 8 baking pan. I also used pecans and almonds for the topping. I like how the sliced almonds "slice" through the toffee.
I think the flavor is close to my earlier post, but these won't crack your crowns! I sprayed the pan with cooking spray, but next time I would use parchment paper to line it - a tip from Anna at Cookiemadness. I want to try this using my brown sugar recipe, but follow the technique for the Tasty Kitchen recipe.
