English Toffee

This is the best English Toffee recipe I have ever had, it's easy and has the perfect crunch. It is so good with chopped peanuts or almonds in the center.

  • Combine in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir until butter and sugar are dissolved together, then bring to a rolling boil. 
  • Cook until the mixture turns a carmel brown and reaches the crack stage (we used a candy thermometer and it was around 310 degrees).
  • Pour over a handful of your favorite nuts (we used peanuts) on a cookie sheet lined with cooking spray. 
  • Spread it flat, and immediately sprinkle on a handful of chocolate chips. 
  • When the chocolate chips start to melt, spread them evenly over the toffee.
