This isn’t ordinary toffee, as the name implies.  This is a recipe you’ve probably seen before actually. It’s all over Pinterest and Facebook. But there’s just one thing that really gets me about all those recipes….

The name that’s used most of the time. It’s typically called “Christmas Crack.”

I’m going to get all serious for just a moment, and let you know how much this term bothers me.

I will not click on any Pin or post that refers to a recipe as “crack.” I don’t care how good it looks. 

I just find it really…. I don’t know…. inappropriate?  

There are so many other terms out there to describe the addicting nature of an item, that I just really try to stay away from this one.  We all know what crack is and it’s true nature and very real effects. I just don’t think it’s the correct word to describe candy or any food, ya know? 

Bloggers, Pinners, Facebookers can we PLEASE stop using this term already??? Use that brilliant mind of yours and find something a little more creative!

Ok, now that’s out of my system, on to the recipe!
