    Those bars were my favorite! This recipe comes pretty close.

    Macintosh Toffee Copycat Candy

    1/4 cup butter

    1 (11 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)

    1/4 cup corn syrup

    1 1/4 cups brown sugar, packed

    1 Grease an 8" cake pan.

    2 In a large heavy saucepan, soften the butter.

    3 Stir in remaining ingredients.

    4 Stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium high heat

    5 Candy thermometer should reach just below hardball stage - approx 250-260 degrees.

    6 Stir constantly as it will stick to the pan easily.

    7 Pour into pan quickly and cool.

    Note: Decreasing cooking time slightly will make a softer toffee. But don't decrease it too much or you won't get enough carmelization and browning and flavor.
