Sometimes, I really crave something sweet. I don't have what I'd call an impressive sweet tooth, but there are times when I'd like something to pair with my afternoon coffee or tea. Rather than run off to the bakery or candy shop, I prefer to put something together in my kitchen just after lunch so I've got something on hand when the mood strikes later in the afternoon.
The recipe below is my answer to a craving for toffee. Normally, an hours-long process that takes a lot of hands-on work, this simple candy allows you to cheat a bit and get a lot of the traditional toffee flavor without all of the time and fuss. I'm also a fan of it because the entire recipe consists of just four ingredients. As a result, I tend to have those on hand so I can whip up a batch at a moment's notice. I hope you find it to be a go-to recipe for you as well.
