I got this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens cookbook several years ago. It's very good. Enjoy!

I'm using this as my base recipe and then tweaking it. I just made the first batch and used 1/2 c of dark brown sugar that I needed to use up and then 1/2 c white sugar. Immediately after reaching 290 degrees, I stirred in 1 TBS of baking soda then poured into a cookie sheet lined with foil that had been sprayed with non-stick spray. Next time I'm going to try some vinegar. One of these times I will probably use nuts, too. Chocolate masks the toffee taste for me so we'll see if I try that. This is a great recipe, though.

  4. Heat to 290 degrees using a candy thermometer.
  5. Watch carefully after it reaches 280 degrees (if the top if the toffee looks burnt it's okay).

  8. Sprinkle chips on top and let set for 3 minutes.
