I have been posting some of my favorite holiday treat recipes. My holiday festivities are not complete without toffee. This is a recipe that I have use for years and it is still my favorite toffee recipe.
1/2 C boiling water
1 C packed brown sugar
1 C sugar
1/3 C light corn syrup
1/8 t salt
1/3 C butter
1 C semisweet chocolate chips
1 C toasted almond slivers
- Add sugars, corn syrup, and salt to boiling water. Once it is dissolved cover the pan and cook over high heat for about 2 minutes. There shouldn’t be any sugar crystals left on the sides of the pan. Using a candy thermometer, cook without cover until temperature reaches 240 degrees. Do not stir. Add the butter and continue cooking until the temperature reaches 300 degrees. This is the hard crack stage.
- Pour into a buttered 13 X 9 inch baking dish. While this is cooling slightly, melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or microwave.
- Spread about 1/2 of the melted chocolate over the toffee and sprinkle with about 1/2 of the almonds. Invert the candy onto a wax paper lined baking sheet. Spread the remaining chocolate and almonds over the toffee.
- Once the mixture has hardened, break into chunks.
