This chocolate toffee crunch is a very easy treat that you can make for anytime of the year with only four ingredients. Serve it for special occasions or gift it from your kitchen.
This recipe comes from my good friend Carmen in California. You will be surprised at how easy this is to make. Perhaps the biggest recommendation is that you be patient when cooking the butter with the sugar. Make sure that you cook it enough — until it separates from the sides of the pot — but don’t burn it.
Here is what you are going to need for this delicious and exquisite chocolate toffee crunch:
2 cups butter
2 cups sugar
2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups crushed walnuts
Melt the butter and sugar in a heavy pot. Mix constantly until mixture separates from sides of pot and turns medium amber color. Be careful not to burn it!
Line two rimmed cookie sheets with aluminum foil. Pour half of the butter mixture on each one of the pans. Spread the chocolate chips over the toffee. Cover with crushed walnuts. Softly press in the chocolate and walnuts into the toffee using the back of a spoon.
Wait for the toffee to get hard. Cut the candy into squares and pack them into an air tight container, separating each layer with wax paper.
