Favorite I Like Big Buttons! Christmas Candy: English Toffee December 23 2020

This is one of my Grandma's recipes and a favorite of my husband's. I have to admit I am quite fond of it too.



* ½ cup chopped nuts (pecan or walnuts)
* ¾ cup brown sugar
* ½ cup butter
* 6 oz chocolate chips (semi or milk chocolate)


1. Place ½ cup of chopped nuts in the bottom of an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet.
2. Cook ¾ cup of brown sugar (packed) and ½ cup butter to 270 degrees for about 7 minutes, stirring constantly.
3. Pour over nuts and smooth out.
4. Sprinkle over toffee 6 oz of chocolate chips (or not).
5. Cover at once with tin foil and wait for 2 minutes or until chips are soft.
6. Then spread the melted chocolate out with a spatula.
7. Let Cool.
8. Break into pieces. Turn over on wax paper and strike with a heavy spoon or break with hands.

Keep refrigerated. (May freeze)
