This brings back warm memories of Christmas time at my grandparents with all the women-folk in the kitchen making goodies. This recipe is as good today as it was back then!
- 1 lb butter (not margarine)
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
- 5 tablespoons water
- 12 ounces milk chocolate chips or 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1⁄8 cup chopped walnuts or 1⁄8 cup pecans or 1⁄8 cup almonds
- Melt butter over low. Spread foil over cookie sheet and brush with some of the melted butter.
- Add sugar, corn syrup, water and nuts to butter in pan and slowly bring to a boil. (Turn heat up by 1/2 increments every few minutes until reaches medium low.).
- Watch for 298 degrees (soft crack stage) on a candy thermometer. pour onto the foil and quickly spread and reshape.
- Let set for two minutes, then immediately sprinkle half (measure!) of the chocolate chips on top.
- After another 2 minutes, spread the now softened chocolate chips and sprinkle with half the nuts.
- Flip onto foil covered second cookie sheet and immediately sprinkle remaining chocolate chips on top. Wait 2 minutes then spread chocolate and sprinkle nuts.
- When completely cool, break into pieces and store in tightly covered container.
This is superb! We love toffee! I didn't add the nuts due to family taste but this is super easy. On the second part of the chocolate chips, I did have to stick them in the oven for a little bit to get them warmed up more but other than they the recipe went great!! Thanks, Puppitypup, for the great recipe! Made for Potluck Game
Excellent. I used chopped pecans! I will put some melted chocolate in little candy molds, then the melted toffee, then some chocolate again, the next time I make. This recipe is ideal for single candies or in broken chunks. Great for gift giving. I will make time and time again. Thanks for posting!
