Candy Treats...

This post is something I started back in the winter time and just didn't get around to completing and posting.  Yes, I gave this stuff away as christmas gifts.  However, gift giving can be anytime!   Either one would make a fabulous teacher or house-warming gift!

The crock pot recipe is from a former Frisco co-worker.     Thank you LB!!!!  This particular recipe is incredible easy and makes way more than you can imagine.   I used the tiny muffin liners from Dollar Tree.  The candy sprinkles make it look particularly festive!!!!

This stuff can't get any easier!   Drop it in the crock pot and turn it on!  

The hubs friend and co-worker, PV,  made this next one for an office staff party.  He couldn't stop eating it.  Thank goodness she gave me the recipe.   This toffee is simply amazing!   Watch it close and look for the caramel color.  Not all microwaves are the same for cooking times!  Enjoy!!!

Easy Microwave Toffee
3/4 - 1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup wter
1 bag milk chocolate chips

Grease or spray a 9 inch circle on a lined cookie sheet or aluminum foil.
Spread the pecans over this!
Spray the glass batter bowl with canola oil as well.
Add the butter, sugar, salt & water to bowl.
Microwave this for about 9 - 11 minutes or until it is a light caramel brown color.

Pour over pecans.  
Lay the chocolate chips over the top of the toffee and spread after about a minute.
Shake a very small amount of sea salt over this!!!

I used a small tin from Dollar Tree  and lined it with a cute doily!
