Every year when christmas time rolls around I bring out my delicious recipes
and kick my diet out the window for the next couple weeks. :)
I recently brought a big batch of "chocolate almond toffee"
to work and the ladies LOVED it....so much that tonight I have been making it like a mad woman...
3 batches to be exact. :) Two of which are for my coworkers and one batch split between the
mailman and trashman....tis the season!
Almond Chocolate Toffee
1/2 Cup almond slices
1 Cup butter
1 Cup sugar
3 Tbls. water
1 Tbls. light corn syrup
1 Cup chocolate chips
Line 9x13" pan with foil (bending over the sides of pan).
Sprinkle Almonds on the bottom of pan.
Butter sides of 2 qt. saucepan.
Melt buter over low heat.
Stir in sugar, water and corn syrup.
Cook and stir over medium high heat to boiling.
Using a CANDY thermometer, cook to 290 degrees.
Pour in prepared pan.
Let stand 2-3 minutes then sprinkle with chocolate chips....
wait a couple minutes til the chocolate chips are glossy and spread them out.
Chill in fridge til firm. Break into peaces.
Make sure you stir constantly or else it will burn very easily.
Be CAREFUL, when this gets on u it is like burns like tar and doesn't come off.
For easy cleanup....right when you empty the saucepan put dawn dishsoap RIGHT in it with hot water, let set....and the toffee will wash right off.....do it right way though or else you will have a HARD impossible mess :)
