Is it beginning to look a lot like Christmas where you live?

There isn’t any snow on the ground where we live yet, but I am totally okay with that. After living in Minnesota, where it snows October through April, I could go an entire winter without any snow. But inside our house Christmas has arrived! If you’ve been following our christmas tree dilemma, we did end up getting an artificial christmas tree. Although I have no idea where we will store the tree after Christmas is over, we’re definitely enjoying it now!

This toffee recipe is amazing and super easy to make for the holidays! I love that the ingredients to make this toffee are easy to find when I’m shopping at Walmart. I was even able to pick up some Don Victor Honey which you can find in the Hispanic aisle at Walmart.Don Victor Honey is unique because it packages the honey comb inside the jar, giving it a superior taste! I also received a package of new Don Victor products to try, I guess Christmas came early this year!

#Honeyforholidays #DonVictorThis christmas toffee really is easy to make. Don’t worry about having to use a candy thermometer to see if the toffee is at the correct temperature. I don’t even own a candy thermometer, so none of those crazy recipes will be posted here! The hardest thing you’ll have to do is make sure the color of the toffee turns out to be the color of the almond.

Easy Christmas Toffee

Yield: lots of toffee!

Total Time:1 hour


This post has been updated - please see our recipe for christmas english toffee here!

  • 1 cup whole almonds, with skin on
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp Don Victor Honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups milk chocolate chips (or one 12 oz package)
  • Green, red, and white candy melts for drizzling


  1. Toast the almonds by spreading them in a single layer on a plate and microwaving on high for 2-3 minutes (stir after each minute).
  2. On foil-lined 9×13 inch baking sheet (or similar size), arrange almonds in a single layer.
  3. In a 2-quart saucepan combine the butter, sugar, Don Victor Honey, vanilla, and salt. Heat over medium to high heat, stirring [i]constantly[/i] until the butter is melted.
  4. Continue cooking and stirring for approximately 7 to 10 minutes until the mixture is the color of the brown skin of the almonds. It’s okay if it starts bubbling or slightly smoking, just stir continuously until it’s the color of the almond skin.
  5. Once it reaches that color, immediately pour the hot candy mixture evenly over the almonds.
  6. Immediately following, sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the hot toffee. Wait 1 minute for the chips to melt, then spread the melted chocolate until it is smooth over the toffee.
  7. Let the toffee cool on the pan in the fridge until the chocolate has set.
  8. Follow the directions on the candy melts for melting. Melt some of each color.
  9. Remove the toffee from the fridge and take turns drizzling each color over the toffee. I used squeeze bottles to drizzle mine, but you could use a spoon.
  10. Return the toffee to the fridge to set.
  11. Once set, about 30 minutes, break the toffee into pieces and store in a container. I like to keep mine in the fridge so the chocolate remains hard.

  14. I think I’d just about die if it actually snowed and looked like a real Christmas where I am… I lose my circulation just walking down the freezer aisle looking at ice cream (and I won’t confess how often that happens; it’s much too embarrassing! ;) ), so I’m happy with simply clouds. Or chilly weather and clear skies. And artificial trees too. (Both of my parents are allergic!) And if I had this toffee by my side… Life would be absolutely complete. I love how cute your treats always look!! Pinned!
