This recipe is brought to you from my in laws. Davids mom makes the BEST toffee. I am completely intimidated by candy making, but this stuff is easy to make. It truly is the best toffee I have ever had.
Easy Homemade Toffee
1 C. Butter
1 C. Sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Dash of salt
1 Cup chopped walnuts or almonds--Big bag of almonds found here.
1 Cup Chocolate
Instructions: Prepare foil or parchment paper covered cookie sheet with at least 1 cup chopped walnuts or almonds. Make an oval shape with the nuts. Set aside. Place butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a skillet. Cook over medium to high heat, stirring constantly until mixture turns the color of a brown paper sack. Candy will start to smoke when it is ready to pour. Pour over nuts on cookie sheet. (Don't scrape the candy out of the pot). Spread melted chocolate over the toffee. (you can also sprinkle chocolate chips over the toffee and they will melt). Top the chocolate with chopped nuts as a garnish. Let chocolate set up, and then break it into small pieces. Store in a cool place.
We toasted our almonds before chopping them. It took 10-15 minutes on 350 degrees. Watch them carefully so they don't burn.
Make sure you use a pan that is deep enough so your toffee doesn't bubble over as it's cooking. We used this exact pan here.
You can see it start to thicken
The color is noticeably getting darker
I can tell we are close but it isn't yet "smoking"
Just started to smoke so we know its done! Be careful at this step. We left one of our batches on about 60 seconds too long, and it burned. Immediately remove once you see it starting to "smoke".
Click here to see the induction cooker we used. Super awesome and keeps the candy at a steady temperature.
Let toffee set up. Either place outside in the cold, or let it set up over night. Break into small pieces and enjoy! It taste very similar to almond roca. It truly is such a simple and delicious recipe. Let us know if you have any questions!
