Sweet Melissa Sundays: The Toffee that Almost Made It
After a few weeks of being busy, then sick, then busy again, I was excited to jump back into Sweet Melissa Sundays with Butter Toffee Crunch. Unfortunately, I scorched my toffee! The one thing you have to be careful of when making candy, and I did it! In my defense, my really nice candy thermometer from King Arthur Flour seemed to be having a problem; the temperature was stuck at 170 degrees, even as it was burning. I didn't have the heart to try again in time to post for this week. :( But I will try it again closer to Christmas. Thanks to Kaitlin of Kait's Plate for choosing this festive recipe; I'll try not to burn it next time! And if you want to see how the other SMS baker's fared with their toffee, check out the Sweet Melissa Sundays blogroll!
