I tasted the toffee again this morning. It is soo good! My family loves English Toffee and I think they will adore this one, also.

I used about 1 1/2 cups pecans. (1/2 cup on top) Will try walnuts next time. I used Ghirardelli Cho Chips as it's all I had at the moment. Will use good quality choc bar next time - but the Ghirardelli SemiSweet chips are good and a fine substitution.

The freshly grated sea salt was a wonderful addition and I will always do that. Adds that extra zip and it's great!

I found the cinnamon blended with molasses a good combination but I think it would be really good without it, as well. Maybe even alittle more coffee flavor would prevail without the cinnamon.

If you don't have espresso powder, I don't see why you couldn't use real espresso in place of the water in the recipe.

Great recipe and I'm really glad you shared it, Cactus Sue. I think maybe it was posted another time or I saw it somewhere else but had never gotten around to making it.

I think since I'd just gotten my new stove in last week that I was itching to try a new recipe. Think I'm going to start a candy thread to see what all new recipes everyone has come up with this last year. I've got a space rented to sell candy at a Christmas Bazarr at my daughter's work so I'm going to be very busy the next 3 weeks. Open to any and all suggestions!

Thx again!
