Chocolate-Almond Toffee



It's candy time, this is a fairly easy candy to make and so good; you can top your Toffee with toasted nuts

Ingredients


1 cup sugar 
1/4 cup water
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Dash of salt 
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/2 cup chopped whole almonds, toasted

Preparation

1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, 

stirring just until combined; bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy 

thermometer registers 325° or until syrup begins to caramelize. Stir in vanilla and 

salt. Working carefully and quickly, pour sugar mixture onto a baking sheet covered 

with parchment paper; spread to desired thickness. Let toffee stand 5 minutes. 

Sprinkle chocolate over warm toffee; let stand 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate in a 

thin, even layer over toffee; immediately sprinkle with chopped almonds. Let stand 1 

hour or until completely cool. Break toffee into pieces.
