DIRECTIONS

  • -Preparea slightly greased cookie sheet pan that has edges (is this called a jelly roll pan?)-Combine butter, sugar, water and corn syrup in a medium saucepan.
  • Mix well and cook over medium heat to 260 degrees on a candy thermometer (Be careful, it will be vigorously boiling. This is hot stuff!).
  • Stir occasionally, but don't scrape down the sides of the pan because it will make the candy grainy.
  • -At260 degrees, add the almonds and stir continuously, but gently until the mixture reaches exactly 300 degrees.
  • -Removefrom heat and pour onto slightly greased pan.
  • -Spreadout candy to edges and corners.
  • -Topwith chocolate chips.
  • The heat from the candy will melt the chocolate, after several minutes, spread the chocolate to fully cover toffee.
  • -Sprinklewith walnuts if desired, though some people prefer to skip the walnuts. Also other favorite chopped nuts (almonds, peanuts, macadamias, etc. may be substituted for walnuts.
  • -Coolcompletely, about 2 or more hours.
  • -Breakinto pieces and try not to eat too much yourself.
