We are really getting down to the wire. Christmas is 4 days away. FOUR

I finally got caught up this weekend. Gifts are bought, wrapped, the meals are planned, and now I’m just sitting back enjoying it all. We do have a few holiday parties this week, and I don’t like to show up empty handed, so I whipped  up this easy homemade toffee.

I just LOVE toffee, and while most have almonds, my kids are not nut fans, so I skipped the nuts and added just a sprinkle of sea salt flakes.

I’m definitely a salty with my sweet person, but if you’re not leave it off, or replace it with crushed almonds for a more traditional English toffee. Either way you have a quick and easy homemade toffee hostess gift that is sure to please.
