Special toffee candy (for san mateo county fair culinary arts 2019)

Hi foodies, this week I've been testing recipes for walmart food champ recipe club and san mateo county fair culinary arts contests. So I decided to practice making this toffee candy that has been in the Jensen- lake sayerwin families for 3 generations the recipe was created by the grandma of the Jensen family in my neighborhood who loves knitting dorothy Jensen. So the sponsors are the preston's candy and ice cream in Burlingame the grand prize for this contest is 150.00 bucks and 2nd and 3rd place prizes are included. So I gave a couple of samples to my dad and friends they said it was the best toffee I ever had!!! Katie's husband asked if there were Ritz crackers but no just salstine  soda crackers seal the deal. So I hope to enjoy!
