I made this homemade toffee butter crunch for my friend Tracy the other day. She’s expecting it in the mail. – Don’t Look Tracy! I had to make a double portion and this is what was left before I decided to take a picture of it for our blog. I usually make this for Christmas each year and put on about 5 pounds. It is simply scrumptious!!!
Toffee Butter Crunch
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
Line a 13x19x2-inch pan with foil. Sprinkle the nuts in pan. Melt butter in saucepan, add sugar, corn syrup, add 3 tablespoons of water. Cook and stir over medium high heat to simmer. Clip candy thermometer to pan and cook to 290 (I sometimes cook to 270 for softer candy). Cook for 15 minutes. Watch carefully after 280 as it could scorch the butter. Now pour mixture into prepared pan. Let stand 5 minutes and sprinkle with chocolate chips – add more if you wish. Let stand 2 minutes and spread. Break into pieces when cool.
