We have been on a toffee making roll all month long. I seriously think we have made it about 4 or 5 times just this month. It is so good, and I think we are all addicted! We have had a lot of people ask for the recipe, so we take that as a sign that it is good stuff and so we just keep making it for one reason or another.
Here's the recipe:
Prep: cover a large cookie sheet with tinfoil and butter it
4 sticks of butter -melted on a low heat
1/2 cup water
2 1/2 cups white sugar
1/4 cup white corn syrup
Combine the ingredients and bring to a boil-stirring the WHOLE time. Boil and stir, boil and stir, boil and stir, stir, stir until it turns the color of a brown paper lunch bag or 285 degrees.
Pour the hot toffee into a large cookie sheet that you have covered with tinfoil. Let the toffee cool for 5 minutes then sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Once it has melted, spread it around. Last top it off with some finely chopped nuts.
Put it in the freezer for a few minutes to harden the chocolate.
When it is done, break into pieces.
