    I know!

    The cookies are for work so I will not be eating too many of them The one that gets me each year is the English Toffee...And the caramel rolls.

    If you like HEATH bar candy try this one. It's wonderful (and a million
    calories)..

    INGREDIENTS:

    1# of salted butter
    2 1/2 cups superfine sugar
    3/4 tsp. Lecithin
    1 1/2 tbs. light corn syrup
    1/2 tbs. of honey
    1/8 tsp. salt
    1/3 cup of Irish Cream Liquor (or 2T. Irish Cream flavor)
    1 cup toasted chopped almonds
    1# Chocolate candy melts

    DIRECTIONS:

    In a large sauce pan melt butter. Add sugar & Lecithin--stir until mixture
    comes to a boil--add corn syrup & honey--cook on med. heat stiring to prevent
    burning--bring to 295 DEG. on candy thermometer--remove from heat. Add salt,
    nuts, & Irish Cream--MIX THOUROUGHLY. Pour onto buttered cookie sheet.
    Spread mixture evenly with a wooden spatula. Let cool completely. After
    toffee has cooled break into irregular pieces--melt the chocolate melts in
    micro and dip toffee making sure to completely coat. Transfer to waxed paper
    to cool..Toffee must be stored in air tight container or baggies to keep from
    softening. Please enjoy!!

    Have to get ready for church. This thread is picking up. Will probably have some catching up to do when I get home. Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.

    Later!

    I cannot stop eating them they are so good!

    Finding the lecithin is a bit tricky but usually a health food store will have it. The lecithin is a stabilizer and makes the toffee evenly hard. You could make it without it but it is not the same.

    Did you see my bread a few (oh dear. I think it's been six months!) months back? I am a lover of things made from scratch. However, I love the bread machine for making dough and most loaves of bread.
    I have Almond joy and Mounds recipes. I was going to make Mounds today, but after getting the crib apart, upstairs, "where did those doohickeys go?!" and together, I am on the couch, and not moving until Duckling gets here, and sees her old room is now a play room!
    The next project will be putting her Harley together for Christmas (rocking horse/motorcycle). That will be fun.
    Okay, too much personal crap. Sorry.

    I do remember that!

    I usually make turtles and last year I made home made caramel for them. They were very tasty!

    Almond Joy and mounds sounds great. I hope the projects go well for you.
