A simple butter toffee frosted with with chocolate and almond slices.
Recipe type: Candy
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ cup whipping cream
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips (semi sweet or milk chocolate)
  • Sliced almonds to taste (about ¼ cup)
Instructions
  1. Use a heavy saucepan to melt butter. Add sugar and cream. Continue cooking over medium to medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until candy becomes the color of a brown paper bag, about 7-10 minutes. (The consistency may change, and that's okay.)
  2. Pour candy into a foil-lined baking dish or small cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips. Leave them for 1 minute to let them melt.
  3. Spread melted chips and immediately sprinkle with almonds.
  4. Let cool until chocolate is set, 1-2 hours. (Once is cools a bit, you can speed up the process by putting it in the fridge.)
  5. Once cooled completely, use foil to remove candy from pan, and use a large knife to cut into chunks.
  6. Candy keeps best in the fridge or freezer.
