    Recipe: Buttery Nut Toffee

    Buttery nut toffee – because it’s good. If you make this, get ready to share since it’s so good you’ll want to eat it all up yourself, which might not be the best thing. I made this recipe using white sugar and each time I can’t seem to get the butter to brown as much as I would like – so I tried it with brown sugar and it turned out perfect.

    Homemade Snickers. What? Yes. I remember when I was working at Cedar Point (I worked in Camp Snoopy and the Gemini the summer of 2002) and I would walk to the back of the park before it was open to get to the rides I was working.
