This recipe comes from my mother-in-law. She made this every Christmas! It was one of my favorites to enjoy every year.

Serves:

one pan (11 x 17)

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

35 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 c
white granulated sugar
6 Tbsp
water
4 stick
unsalted butter
1 pinch
salt
2 tsp
vanilla extract
12 oz
chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Butter a 11 x 17 baking sheet.
2
In a heavy bottom pot melt the sugar, butter and water over high heat. Constantly stirring mixture until it comes to a full boil. Continue boiling and stirring until it reaches 310 degrees on a candy thermometer or it reaches a hard crack stage when tested in a cup of cool water. This wil take about 30-35 to reach this stage- the color will look like caramel. Remove from heat and carefully add vailla extract. Stir to mix in vaniila. Pour mixture into the prepared 11 x 17 pan. Let cool for 10-15 minutes then top with chocolate chips. Allow them to melt slightly and spread over surface of toffee. You can add chopped nuts also. I like prefer not to add nuts but sprinkle with a bit of sea salt to bring out the flavor of the chocolate.
3
Enjoy. Keep loosely covered in pan or you can break it up into pieces and store in a tightly sealed container.
