Crunchy Yummy Toffee

image source

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:

English Toffee

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. 

Sooo good!!
