Chocolate Covered Toffee
Here's a delightful recipe to make for your family during the holidays. Delicious!
1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon corn syrup
2 cups chopped pecans
2 cups miniature semisweet chocolate chips
In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in sugar, water, and corn syrup, and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil until mixture reaches hard-crack stage (300 degrees on candy thermometer). This process may take 10-12 minutes.
Meanwhile, spread half of the nuts in a lightly buttered oblong cake pan. Top with half of the chocolate. When the syrup is ready, pour over nuts and chocolate. Immediately top with remaining chocolate and then the remaining nuts. Wait 3-4 minutes, then gently press down with a rubber spatula to spread the chocolate evenly.
While the candy is still warm, loosen it from the baking sheet. When cool, break into chunks. Makes 24-36 pieces of candy.
