Baked Toffee

Baked Toffee

When I first pulled this out of the oven, I thought, “There’s a lot of expensive nuts gone to waste,” but the longer it sat, the better it got!

1 C butter
1 C firmly packed brown sugar
2 1/2 C of nuts – 2 cups chopped and 1/2 cup finely
     chopped – I use half pecans and half walnuts
1 C dark chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 375º.  Butter a 9X13 cake pan. 

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and then add brown sugar.  Stirring constantly, bring to a boil.  Remove from the heat and add 2 C chopped nuts.  Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and let cool until top is solid, but not so cool that the chips won’t melt.  Pour the chips on top and when melted, spread over the surface of the toffee.  Immediately sprinkle the 1/2 C of finely chopped nuts on top.  Store covered in a cool place.
