This is rich, sweet and crunchy. Even though I am not a dessert person, I like to have a little something sweet to serve to guests after a meal. These little candies were perfect as each guest can take as little (or as much) as they wish. From Taste of Home's 2003 Brand Name Recipe cookbook.
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 3⁄4 cup salted cashews, coarsely chopped
- 3⁄4 cup salted macadamia nut, coarsely chopped
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- Line a 9" square pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan.
- Butter foil.
- Cover bottom of pan with chocolate chips.
- In a large skillet, combine both nuts, butter, sugar, and corn syrup.
- Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved.
- Increase heat to medium, continue to cook and stir, until mixture begins to cling together and turns golden brown.
- Pour mixture over chocolate chips in pan and spread evenly.
- Cool and then refrigerate until chocolate is firm.
- Remove from pan and peel off foil.
- Break into pieces to serve.
- Store tightly covered in a cool place.
This was easy and came out well but next time I will make a few changes next time around. One cup of chocolate chips would have been enough and I will use just one type of nut next time.
I made this as a little something extra for the cookie trays. This was wonderful!!! This made a rich toffee like candy that I loved. I'm glad that I gave most of it away because I know that I wouldn't be able to trust myself around it. I used one cup of milk chocolate chips and one cup of semi-sweet chips (I didn't know which the recipients would prefer and I figured that everyone would be half satisfied this way). I had a little bit of trouble breaking the candy so I used a knife and pounded it with a kitchen mallet. This method produced a lot of nice sized pieces and a lot of "crumbs" too. Darn! I guess that I'll have to eat them! ;0) Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I know that I'll make this again (maybe tomorrow!)
Oooooohhhhhh! Sweet, salty, and crunchy. Loved this! And it is SO easy to make. We also sprinkled the smaller "crumbs" onto recipe #68117 . :yummy:
