The melt-in-your-mouth goodness of toffee, in just a few steps! Try experimenting with different types of nuts and flavors (add chili, coconut and salt to your almonds for a spicy kick) and the possibilities are endless! Toffee tastes better the next day after the flavors develop - just store in an air tight container until ready to serve!
1 1/2 cups toasted almond (or other nut) chopped
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
4 bars chocolate
Butter pan (like 7×11 or 8×8) and sprinkle 1 cup of almonds evenly over bottom. Melt butter in heavy bottom saucepan, add brown sugar and cook over medium-high heat until gently boiling. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 12 minutes, stirring constantly (if you have a candy thermometer, this will be about 300 degrees). Carefully pour onto baking sheet over almonds, and smooth with back of spoon. Arrange chocolate bars over top and let sit for a few minutes until melted. Evenly spread chocolate, and sprinkle with remaining almonds. Cool completely, and break into smaller pieces when ready to serve!
