Instead of buying candy for your sweetheart, why not make it?
It’s the thought that counts, and when it comes to homemade gifts, the thought is what makes them so special. Putting time, energy, and thought into a gift rather than just buying it shows so much more.
My salted chocolate pecan toffee is so decadent and sweet and is a great treat to give as a gift, especially for that someone special. It’s also really easy to make.
It’s important to have a candy thermometer because it takes some time to get the candy to the precise temperature, but that is simple when you have the right tool. When you have this all finished and broken into pieces, place the toffee into a pretty box or gift bag. You can’t go wrong with this delicious combination of sweet, salty, nutty and chocolate.
