Melt in your mouth Toffee.....
Thank you Janine and Becky for turning me on to this recipe...and thank you to the candy gods for giving me another chance at candy making with success!
MELT IN YOUR MOUTH TOFFEE
adapted from Allrecipes
1 Pound butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups sliced toasted almonds
2 cups bittersweet chocolate chips
pinch of kosher salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 In a heavy saucepan, combine butter, white sugar, and brown sugar, and salt. Cook SLOWLY over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture boils. Boil to brittle stage, 300 degrees F (150 degrees C) without stirring. Remove from heat. Add Vanilla.
2 While it's cooking, pour and spread out nuts and chocolate chips (if you're using) into an ungreased half sheet pan that you've lined with a silpat or if not, lightly buttered. Pour hot mixture over the nuts and chocolate, and working quickly, spread out to fill pan evenly with a wooden spoon or heat-resistant spatula. Let the mixture cool and break it into pieces before serving.
