I realize that claiming this is the BEST toffee EVER is bold.
But, it really is that good.
This homemade toffee recipe is delicious.
The kind of delicious that makes you eat waaayyyy more then you intend.
And be okay with it.
This homemade toffee recipe is the kind of recipe you don’t share.
Because you want to be the one with “the toffee”.
But, as you all won’t tell anyone.
Because you all can keep secrets…
I will share.
Shhh…don’t. tell. anyone. else!!
Homemade Toffee Recipe.
yields 1 pound.
1 cup butter.
1 cup sugar.
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts. pecans, walnuts, almonds…whatever.
Cover the bottom of a 9 by 9 pan with aluminum foil.
(To use a cookie sheet double the recipe.)
Combine the butter, sugar, and salt in a heavy saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium heat…stirring constantly.
Cook until it darkens in color. (technically that is 285 degrees…we guess)
(Update: My daughter wanted me to mention a trick to know if it’s done…
If you drop some of the mixture into ice water, wait a bit for it to cool, and it hardens…
When your butter and sugar mix gets to the right color pour into the pan.
Sprinkle the top with the chocolate chips.
Leave it for a minute or two so that it will soften.
Spread all pretty-like.
Put the nuts on top. Push those nuts in a bit so they stick.
Pop that into the fridge until set.
It will be gone in like 30 seconds.
Be sure to be by yourself when you make this.
