Started making this in the 1960s and have not stopped. I do not remember where I got the original recipe but I think from one of my grandmother's many dishes. They were both great cooks.

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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Butter Almond Toffee

Step-by-Step

  1. Sprinkle half of the almonds and half of the chips on a buttered 9x13" pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
