How to Make Butter Toffee

Step-by-Step

  1. Butter 15x10x1-inch jelly-roll pan. Combine all ingredients except nuts and chocolate chips in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted.
    Reduce heat to medium-low. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until candy thermometer reaches 300°F or small amount of mixture dropped into cold water forms hard brittle strands (25 to 40 minutes). Stir in 1 cup nuts.
    Pour mixture into prepared pan; spread to desired thickness. Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot candy; let stand 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate evenly over candy. Sprinkle with nuts. Cool completely (at least 3 hours). Break into pieces. Store in airtight container in a cool dry place up to three weeks.
  2. TIPS: Test your thermometer in boiling water. If the water boils at a temperature other than 212°F, adjust the temperature accordingly.
    If your toffee separates during cooking, carefully and slowly add about 1/2 cup hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and stir constantly.
    If you prefer a thinner toffee, use two buttered (15x10x1-inch) pans or cookie sheets and pour half of toffee mixture on each; spread to desired thickness.
