I first came across this delicious creation while shopping with my family in Ellicott City, an amazing antique shopping destination in Maryland. A lady that owned one of the stores there offered us some delightful looking toffee and staying true to our policy of never refusing dessert, we gave it a try. It was incredible! Granted, anything sweet AND salty is pretty much heaven in my book, but these just really yummy.
I asked her for the recipe and she scratched it down on a sticky note for me. Luckily it didn't disappear into the bottomless hole that is my purse because I still have it today! I hope that it makes it on to a few of your cookie trays this year!
