Peppermint Butter Toffee

My husband is an expert toffee maker.  One of the dates we had before we were married was making toffee.   He learned the technique from his mom and grandma which I thought was very sweet and earned him lots of points.  He uses the look and smell test to tell when the boiling sugar becomes actual toffee.  I, however,  do not trust myself enough to make it without the help of a candy thermometer.

This recipe for toffee always produces delicious results.  The toffee is crunchy, yet melts in your mouth.  My favorite topping is crushed candy cane which makes it a special treat to take to a Christmas party or to give to neighbors.
