English Toffee is a hard, crunchy candy typically made with sugar, butter and cream then topped with chocolate and chopped almonds. Little interesting tidbit: In the U.S. the candy is usually made with cane sugar while in the British Isles it's made with brown sugar or molasses.
These ingredients sounded like a pretty good cocktail to me so out came my cocktail shaker.
