Super Easy Toffee Recipe

This is the SUPER easy toffee Jodi made for Murphy as a last minute anniversary gift.

  • 2 cups of butter (4 sticks)
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sliced almonds

Pour softened butter, sugar and salt into heavy bottomed pot, cook on toffeemedium heat until bubbling/boiling.  Stir often, but not constantly.   You are waiting for it to be an amber color.  A warm light brown.

While it’s cooking, place parchment paper on a cookie sheet/pan.  When the butter mixture is the right color (it took me about 10-15 minutes) pour onto the parchment paper and spread to all corners with spatula or wooden spoon.   While still hot – evenly sprinkle the chocolate chips on top.  Then use a little parchment paper on your hand to spread the chips on top.   They will melt into a layer.  Sprinkle with the almonds pieces.  Put in fridge to set – about an hour.  Break into pieces and serve or store for 2-3 weeks in airtight container.   You can substitute any kind of chopped nuts.   Murphy LOVES his!

well, I don’t know if I didn’t cook it long enough or what, but it’s not crunchy…LOL…you have to just chew on little pieces of it, but it tastes great! I had cooked it for over 20 minutes and the color wasn’t Amber enough, so maybe I overcooked it! But my boyfriend loved it so!

You need a candy thermometer, I cook mine to 350 degrees or hardball stage, if you drop it in a glass of cold water kit forms a hard ball. I use dark chocolate and milk chocolate chips and chopped pecans

I was successful in making the toffee harden, I cooked it until the steam coming out of the bubbles was much less so I know most of the liquid from the butter had boiled off. But, I put the chocolate chips on too soon after pouring out the toffee and they sank into the layer rather than just melting on the top!
