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.
I just finished making this,I wish I had doubled the recipe now.I added a tsp of vanilla to the butter mixture.I used chopped almonds on top of the chocolate but they did not really stick to it very well.Next time I'm going to add the nuts to the toffee as soon as it comes off the heat.I like the addition of nuts in the toffee.
Hands down my favorite home made candy! I love the nuts on top, but will stir some into the toffee when it comes off of the heat.
This is Sooooooo good! It makes Heath bars taste like plastic. Since the recipe doesn't mention what size pan you should pour the cooked candy into to cool, I'll note that I doubled the recipe and it fit perfectly into a standard cookie sheet. Last time I made it I only made a single batch and I just spread it as far as it could go on the cookie sheet and still maintain the thickness I wanted. That worked too. Thanks for the great recipe!
I have had these with chopped almonds, walnuts, cashews and pecans sprinkled on top... WONDERFUL!
So tasty, such complex smoky flavor! I topped the toffee with slivered almonds...I must keep myself away from the tupperware in which it is stored! Easy, easy, and I know I'll make this again soon!
2 words... make often! and 2 more... really easy!
Awesome. We loved it!
I just made this. Super easy to make AND it tastes so delicious! I will taking this to a christmas party where I am sure it will be gobbled up.
I received some of this as a gift and it was spectacular! I just had to get the recipe so I could make it myself. The only difference in the recipe I received and this one is mine doesn't call for cooling it in the freezer. Very addictive stuff!
