    fluffernutter's Note:

    Professional results, no candy thermometer required! I tested this toffee over and over for a cooking demonstration recently, which is how I discovered it can be made in 17 minutes. Great for gift giving, if you can resist eating it all! I make the batch with half semisweet chocolate, half white chocolate. Milk chocolate never seems to firm up enough. I once overcooked this to a deep nut brown, and suddenly it separated into a sugary mass and a sort of clarified butter. Still worked, though, and tasted great.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Line a 13x9 pan with aluminum foil, leaving about 4 inches overhang over each end for a "handle.".
    2. 2
      Toast the almonds in a skillet or the oven to a fragrant golden brown.
    3. 3
      Combine the butter and sugar in a saucepan over high heat. Cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon (I used a whisk once and it worked fine) until mixture darkens to a nutty golden.
    4. 4
      (The process starts slowly, then happens very fast, so when it begins to darken, stir like mad and snatch it off the heat once it's darkened a couple of shades.)
    5. 5
      Pour into foil-lined pan, spreading quickly. Let cool about 10 minutes. Top with chocolate or white chocolate. Let melt a few minutes, then spread evenly. Press toasted almonds into the chocolate. Let cool completely, then break into pieces. (Striking it with the tip of a table knife works well for breaking into useful size pieces.).
