English Toffee - Great Candy Recipe

(An old recipe from Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen with pictures now added)

Paula really surprises with this one! Candy Recipes! Wowsers!

Who doesn’t like candy? This is fairly easy and makes a great gift idea when placed in a decorative tin.

And you thought I snuck out of the kitchen!
English Toffee

You will need a candy thermometer.

  1. 2 Cups of Sugar
  2. 1 Teaspoon of Salt
  3. 1 Cup of Water
  4. 1 Cup (2 Sticks Butter)
  5. 3 Cups of Slivered Almonds (Divided)
  6. 3 - 6 Oz Packages Semi Sweet Chocolate Morsels
  1. Combine sugar, salt, water and butter. Cook to the light crack stage (285 f on candy thermometer). Stirring constantly.
  2. Add 1 cup almonds.
  3. Pour quickly on well greased cookie sheet and spread out with a metal spatula. Fast now, because it will set fast.
  4. Allow to cool for ½ hour.
  5. Melt chocolate morsels in saucepan on top of the stove or in microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate on high for 30- second intervals, stirring after each interval until melted.
  6. Spread half on top of cooled toffee.
  7. Sprinkle with 1 cup of slivered almonds and press into chocolate.
  8. Allow it to set then turn toffee over and spread with remaining chocolate and 1 cup of almonds.
  9. When completely cooled, break into pieces.

Great Idea! Candy for all and Paula said to send her all the dental bills! This is a great gift idea, and also to keep around the house.

Sure send them. In my day job I work with several dental offices. I will look into a group rate.

Honestly this one is probably one of the easiest candy recipes I have.

Wow, my grandad always loved toffee, particularly hard, really chewy toffee so I guess thats where I get the love for it from!

Can you tell me, is this toffee hard and chewy or more easy on the teeth?
