Chocolate Almond ToffeeUser Submitted Recipe
Best Toffee Ever
1 lb. Butter
2 1/2 cups Sugar
2 pkgs. sliced almonds toasted & crushed (bake at 350 for about 8 min)
8 oz. semisweet chocolate
8 oz sweet chocolate
Melt butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Stir in sugar. On medium heat, stir until temp. reaches 310 on a candy thermometer (hard crack) Do not let bottom burn. This will take some time.
Pour onto a foil lined 11 X 15 baking pan. (Use Reynolds Release foil) Pan will get hot, rotate pan to get an even layer. Allow to cool and harden
In a double boiler or microwave, melt 4 oz of sweet and 4 oz semisweet chocolate. Pour over cooled toffee. Evenly spread with spatula and sprinkle immediately with almond pieces. Let set.
When set, turn over and add the 2nd half of chocolate and almonds. Let set.
Break apart.( I use a screwdriver and hammer to get small pieces.) Keep refrigerated.
