Gift Idea… HomemadeToffee!

This recipe was my mom’s Toffee recipe. I remember every Christmas this delicious candy she would make; so I made some and thought I would share…
It’s quite simple to make, just make sure you have an accurate candy thermometer.

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons water 
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
6 ounces of chocolate chips or your favorite chopped chocolate 
Butter a 9×13 inch baking pan with sides
In a medium size pot bring to boil the butter, sugar and water. Stirring often bring the mixture to 300 degrees, stir in the nuts. Pour the mixture onto the pan and spread out with a spoon; add the chocolate and spread out evenly.
Cover with wax paper and refrigerate till set; 35-45 minutes. Break into bite size pieces and ENJOY!
Does not require refrigeration; can be stored in a cool dry place. 
Yields approx. 1 pound
