      Delicious and easy, just the kind of holiday treat I like!! I made this last night and the smell was to die for. But this morning, the taste, oh it was even better (is that possible? I don't know, but it is sweet browned butter with chocolate, what could be better than that?!?) I started using my thermometer, but once the sugar and butter got close to the right color, it was easy to see the changes in shade and I just took the thermometer out because it was in my way. I sprinkled the almonds (sliced) over the top of the melted semi-sweet chocolate chips I used (definitely not a whole cup of nuts, about 1 cup of regular chocolate chips). I found that if you never put the toffee in the fridge (everything in them can sit at room temperature, even the butter), they don't sweat and they set up just fine. I spread my toffee on tin foil to cool and clean up was a breeze. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I want to try mixing the nuts in with the toffee, and I think I'll give it a go tonight.

      This was a great toffee, but I think the high setting was much too hot. I reached 305 degrees within 7-8 minutes. I made a second batch using medium to medium high heat and it provided a slower more predictable acceleration. I made one batch with hersheys and the other using dark chocolate. I used chopped pecans and they turned out great.

      Just made these last night. Wonderful! So glad the color was mentioned in the directions--much easier and less stressful than using a thermometer. I used pecans instead of almonds and also put the leftover pecans on top of the chocolate. Wonderful flavor and so easy to do. May have to make these outside of the Christmas season!
