Ingredients

Toffee

  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chopped almonds

    In 2-quart saucepan, mix butter, corn syrup, water and sugar. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture boils, stirring constantly. Cook until candy thermometer reaches soft-crack stage (290°F). Remove saucepan from heat. Quickly stir in almonds. Pour mixture into buttered foil-lined pan. Let stand 2 to 3 minutes to harden.
  • 3
    Sprinkle chips over hot toffee; let stand 1 to 1 1/2 minutes to soften. With knife, swirl softened chips over toffee. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Break toffee into serving-size pieces.

  • When it comes to making toffee, a cool dry day is best. Both heat and humidity can affect the candy.
  • Wrap up this yummy toffee in a festive mug, tin or cellophane bag for a memorable holiday gift.
