Butter Almond Toffee
Blue Ribbon Recipe
As with making any candy stirring and watching the candy thermometer is a bit labor-intensive, but so worth it. You definitely taste the love. This is a little softer than the average toffee and the almonds add a nice crunch. The toffee would make a great holiday gift! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Butter Almond Toffee
- Sprinkle half of the almonds and half of the chips on a buttered 9x13" pan.
- Melt butter, add sugars and water; mix and bring to a boil, stirring constantly and cook to hard crack (300 degrees) stage. I always use a candy thermometer.
- Remove from heat, stir in soda, working fast, pour over nuts and chips in pan, sprinkle other 1/2 of nuts and chips over the candy. Spread it out.
- Cool and break into pieces.
Keeps well in a covered dish in the refrigerator.
