I got this recipe years ago from my Aunt Norma. It's the one candy my DH asks me to make every Christmas. It makes a kind of crunchy toffee. If you like your toffee chewier, you could cook it for less time.
- 1⁄2 cup chopped pecans
- 1⁄2 cup margarine, melted
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 (6 ounce) package chocolate chips
- Spread nuts on bottom of a well-buttered 8X8 pan.
- Combine margarine and brown sugar in a heavy saucepan and bring to a full boil.
- Boil for 7 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Pour mixture over nuts, being sure to cover them all.
- Scatter chocolate chips over toffee.
- Cover until chips have softened, then spread evenly.
- Refrigerate until chocolate has set, turn out on a board and break into bite-sized pieces.
Love this recipe! I've been wanting to make toffee for ages but I don't have a candy thermometer. This was just perfect and rather addictive...lol. I did use butter instead of margarine otherwise didn't change a thing. Thanks so much!
I have a girlfriend who makes this as gifts all the time at Christmas & I am addicted! I got the recipe from her so I could feed the craving all year, Yum!
