English Toffee

 

It’s that time of the year to start making all the Holiday treats.  I had never made toffee before, ever!  I was nervous about getting it just right, but I didn’t need to be. This recipe turned out perfect the very first try!  So don’t sweat the recipe go ahead and give it a try. You won’t regret it.  This toffee was so decadently delicious it will be hard to share.  I received major praise for this treat and you will too!

I find it easier to use this type gadget to chop my nuts.  They stayed contained and don’t fly all over my kitchen.

Because of my apprehension with this recipe I used a candy thermometer and the ice trick.  I just happen to have a candy thermometer but you could just use the ice.

When the candy has reached the correct temperature it hardens immediately upon hitting the ice.

Pour the toffee onto the aluminum foil prepared pan, sprinkle the chocolate chips, spread with an offset spatula and sprinkle with chopped nuts.

Recipe type: Candy
Ingredients
  • 2 sticks Butter (must be BUTTER)
  • 1¼ cups Sugar
  • ¼ cup Water
  • ¼ cup Corn Syrup
  • ½ cup Nuts (I used Pecans) finely chopped
  • 8 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Prepare a jelly roll pan with aluminum foil.
  2. Combine the first four ingredients. Stirring constantly, cook over med to med-high heat until 285 degrees. Around 20-25 minutes. Mixture should turn into a light brown/caramel look.
  3. Pour into the prepared jelly roll pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Let chocolate chips soften and then spread all over the toffee. Sprinkle with chopped pecans while chocolate is still warm. Press the pecans down ever so slightly into the chocolate.
  4. Let cool until hard, then break into pieces.
Notes
No need to butter the aluminum foil. I didn't have any trouble with the toffee sticking.

English Toffee - Easy holiday treat everyone loves!

    Good Afternoon to you, Well you certainly get the thumbs up from me….. and I’m English. Your toffee looks fabulous and with the addition of chocolate and nuts it couldn’t be more perfect. Your friends and family will be thrilled to received a tin of English toffee…. I have a feeling once they receive the English toffee, as Susan said, you will be making it over and over again.
    Best wishes to you.

    Oh these look amazing, I love toffee and it will be going to go on my list as well! I love all your recipes! I’m not sure I’ll get corn syrup here, what could I use instead, granulated sugar? Thank you for sharing this at Share it Link Party this week.

      I’m not sure about using all granulated sugar or not. This was the first time I made the toffee and was so surprised at how easy it was to make.
