At Christmas I saw several recipes for Saltine Toffee. Pam of Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner, posted her recipe for it in December. It must be a Midwestern thing, because not only did my mom make Saltine Toffee, but my grandmother and my great grandmother also made it.
Our friends Fareed and Annette (owners of Passion Radio Network) gave my husband Stan and I a couple of nights at the Strater Hotel for Christmas. While we were there we went to a little candy shop and had Pretzel Toffee. My husband and I both loved it, so when I got home I changed my recipe for Saltine Toffee to Pretzel Toffee.
Annette and Fareed
Right after Christmas, Fareed fell outside of the radio station and broke his leg in two places. He had surgery to place a rod in his leg and it has been a long road to recovery for Fareed. He is missed around the radio station. Going in to record my shows is just not the same without him there.
Fareed loves chocolate; so to help him feel better, I made a batch of Pretzel Toffee for him yesterday and today I am going to drop it by and check on him. Please keep Fareed and his wife Annette in your prayers.
