Notes

This is a "Special" recipe to me and my family, as it was one my beloved Mom would make every year for Christmas. Now that she's gone, I hope I can do the recipe justice and make it as well as she did! Enjoy, maybe it will become one of your family favorites too!

For years, I have made "peanut brittle" for my friends and family for Christmas. If I don't have it on hand, they are not afraid to ask for it. This year, I've taken your "Toffee Butter Crunch" and switched it out for my peanut brittle. They all noticed, but I got no complaints. Thanks for the change. (I did have the peanut brittle made as a back-up, just in case) :)

A dash of local for every season
