  1. I'm a sucker for anything with toffee in it, so these sound amazing! Out of habit, I always buy unsalted butter. To save me a special trip to the store (I have everything else on hand, including the toffee bits - I keep them on hand to sprinkle on ice cream and in hot chocolate), any idea how much salt I should add to make up for not using salted butter? Thanks!

    1. Liz, the original recipe written down from my father only said "butter". Generally you should always use unsalted butter in baking, but I prefer salted butter. If you wanted to add salt, I believe that for every stick of butter you add 1/4 teaspoon salt. So for two sticks of butter you could do up to 1/2 teaspoon.
