This was given to me by a friend several years ago. It is very simple to make and became an instant hit. I am now expected to make it every Christmas. You can use whatever nuts you prefer. I usually use pecans or walnuts


  1. In an 11 x 17 cookie sheet or jelly roll pan (needs to have sides), sprinkle 1/2 cup of the chopped nuts.
  2. Place all remaining ingredients except nuts and chocolate chips in a heavy skillet. Turn heat to high and cook stirring constantly until the mixture is the color of honey (about 7 - 10 minutes).
  3. Poor mixture into the cookie sheet or jelly roll pan. Let stand for approximately one minute and then sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top.
  4. Let stand until chocolate chips have softened (about 5 - 10 minutes), then spread the chocolate over the mixture and sprinkle with the rest of the chopped nuts.
  5. Let it cool until the chocolate isn't sticky (about 2 hours), then break into pieces. It keeps for weeks if stored in a cool, dry place, but trust me it won't last that long!

Yum! This was insanely easy to make and insanely good. I did half white/half brown sugar. It took about 8 minutes to hit the right temperature on high heat. I mention this since the brown sugar already made it the color of honey. :)

I hadn't made toffee in years but got the request this year. This was perfect - wasn't sure if the pan was to be treated prior so I did - worked out great. My old recipe used brown sugar - may use half brown and half white next time. Thanks for bringing back toffee to our holidays!
