I was going through some old pictures last night – to be specific : time spent in San Diego. Next I know I was thinking about the Mexican food and the English toffee from old town. God the craving!!!So I decided to make some toffee at midnight. It took me approx 1 hour. Mission Accomplished. 2 in the morning I was nibbling on toffee and some Bailey Bavarian Mousse truffles I made. Here is a step by step recipe of toffee
