Introduction

This toffee recipe, which Randi originally found on the Food Network message boards, is simply divine! It was from a poster named Janine. :) Randi enjoys filling cello bags with the toffee, tying a pretty ribbon around the package to close, and giving these bags as gifts. Her other notes are included below.

Ingredients

Serves: 6-8

  • ½ butter
  • 250 granulated sugar
  • 250 brown sugar
  • 375 chopped almonds (toasted if you want)
  • 500 chocolate chips (semi-sweet, optional)

Method

Randi's Melt in Your Mouth Toffee is a community recipe submitted by Lea and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • In a heavy saucepan, combine butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. 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.
  • While it's cooking, pour and spread out nuts and chocolate chips (if you're using) into an ungreased 18 X 12 inch 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.
  • Randi's notes: I place a Silpat on a half-sheet pan, which makes clean up a breeze. Be sure to use a very heavy pot to ensure the candy doesn't burn.
