I had been craving toffee and decided to make it as part of my cookie/candy packages this year. I ran across a recipe that I tweaked a bit. YUM ... Enjoy!
- 3⁄4 cup heath bits 'o brickle toffee pieces
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup butter (1 stick)
- 3⁄4 cup chocolate chips
Directions See How It's Made
- Butter a baking sheet. I used my Tupperware Wonder Mat for easy clean-up and didn't need the extra butter.
- Sprinkle 1/2 cup of Heath Bits in a 9" circle on your Wonder Mat.
- Butter the top edges of a 2 quart microwave safe casserole pan.
- Place the butter, salt, sugar and water in the caserole. DO NOT STIR!
- Place the dish in the microwave on high for 6 to 8 minutes. Check it after 7 minutes.
- Continue cooking a minute at a time until the mixture just begins to turn tan. You need to watch it here. The first batch I tried, I checked at 6 minutes and then had to run 3 more one minute intervals. The second batch I checked at 7 minutes and it was perfect.
- REMEMBER -- DO NOT STIR.
- Pour the mixture over your Heath Bits.
- Immediately sprinkle the chocolate chips on top and let them sit for one minute.
- After one minute, spread the chips out with a rubber spatula.
- Sprinkle the remaining Heath Bits over the top.
- Place in the fridge until cooled.
- After the toffee is cooled, break into bite sized pieces.
- Toffee can be frozen for up to a month.
