Recipe type: Homemade Toffee with Chocolate and Almonds
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp water
  • chocolate chips, I use milk chocolate
  • whole or slivered toasted almonds
  • course salt (optional)
Instructions
  1. Combine butter, sugar and water in a 2 or 4 quart sauce pan on low heat until sugar is dissolved. Use a wooden spoon to stir with.
  2. Turn burner up to medium heat and bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly
  3. Stir constantly, paying close attention to hitting every part of the pan so you will not scorch any of the toffee mixture.
  4. It will take approx 5-7 minutes (once it is boiling) for the toffee to turn a light caramel color.
  5. It will get thicker and thicker during the time it is boiling and it is crucial to stir constantly during that time.
  6. If you are using a candy thermometer it needs to get to 300 degrees
  7. If you aren't watch for the color to change (look at the color of the toffee in the picture, it should be that color.)
  8. Dump mixture out onto a ungreased metal cookie sheet, spread. You want it to be about as thick as a soda cracker.
  9. *Sometimes I prep the cookie sheet with whole roasted almonds and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt when I am in the mood for almonds in the toffee.
  10. While it is hot, sprinkle with a half a cup or a whole cup of chocolate chips.
  11. Once the chocolate chips look melted, spread them around with the back of a spoon and sprinkle with slivered or toasted almonds. You can also sprinkle it with a little course sea salt at this point if you like the flavor a little salt gives it.
  12. Let cool completely before breaking into pieces.
