Butter Toffee

Butter Toffee

This recipe can be prepared quickly, in about 15-20 minutes. If you have little ones who could try to "help" a little too much, you might want to wait until they are napping or somebody else is there to help. The cooked candy is very hot and sticky and will easily burn little (or not-so-little) fingers. A candy thermometer is a must for this recipe, and a small angled spatula will make spreading the melted chocolate easier.


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/4 cups light corn syrup
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 3/4 cups chopped almonds
  • 2 cups (12 ounces) semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips
  • 1 c. chopped almonds


  1. Grease a 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 inch jelly roll pan lined with aluminum foil.
  2. Combine sugar, water, corn syrup and butter in a heavy saucepan.
  3. Cook over medium heat; bring to 295 degrees on candy thermometer (hard crack stage), stirring frequently.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Immediately stir in 1 3/4 cup chopped almonds and pour into prepared pan.

  9. Makes 3 to 3 1/2 pounds.
