"If you like the rich taste of toffee and chocolate, you'll love this. The only changes I made were that I used butter instead of margarine and I cooked it to 290-300 degrees instead of 270 degrees. ..." See moreI roasted my own almonds because I like a deeper flavor. If you have a candy thermometer this is a very easy recipe."
