Here’s the deal. I don’t know if this is really the best or easiest toffee to make, because it was my first go at making homemade toffee. I’m not a huge toffee lover. I’ll never buy a Heath Bar or a Score Bar. Never. But toffee is a Christmas staple and so when I saw this simple recipe I decided to give it a try. I figured it’d make a good treat to send with Brett to work or give to some neighbors.
Turns out I totally like toffee, at least this toffee. I nibbled my way through…..well….let’s just say a lot of it. I somehow managed to save some for Brett to take to work….where he ate it all….didn’t even share with his coworkers. He happens to love toffee though.
And yes, this really is sooo easy to make. Perfect for this busy time of year when we feel like we just can’t squeeze in one more thing.
You start by melting butter, sugar and a little salt together and letting it boil until it becomes this rich, amber color. Then you pour it onto a baking sheet and sprinkle some chocolate chips on top. As the chocolate chips melt you spread them out over the toffee layer creating a smooth, rich chocolate layer. Then sprinkle lots of chopped almonds all over the top.
Chill it, break it, and eat it.
I guess it is the best and easiest toffee I’ve ever made.
**this recipe makes about 2 lbs of toffee (I halved the recipe when I made it).
