Southern Living Toffee
How to Make Southern Living Toffee
- Toast pecans at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Do not burn. Place 1 cup of pecans on lightly greased cookie sheet. (save other 1/2 cup for later)
- In a heavy sauce pan, bring sugar, butter, corn syrup, and water to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Cook until it reads 290 to 310 degrees on a candy thermometer. (takes about 15 minutes)
- Pour toffee mixture over pecans. Sprinkle with chocolate morsels. Let stand 30 seconds, then spread chocolate over toffee and smooth out. Sprinkle remaining pecans evenly over chocolate/toffee mixture.
- Chill in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Break into bite size pieces. Store in air tight container at room temp or in the refrigerator.
