Servings 4 servings
- 2 tablespoons of butter at room temperature, plus 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
- 1 cup assorted nuts (I used sunflower seeds and almonds)
- 2 cups white granulated sugar
- 8 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate (I used baking chocolate bars, but you can use chocolate chips)
Layer of a 5″x8″ baking sheet (ie a half pan sheet) with parchment paper and grease the parchment paper with the 2 tablespoons of butter. Scatter the nuts on the parchment paper evenly.
Melt the butter over high heat in a heavy bottomed saucepan with high sides. Add the the sugar and start to stir. Stirring almost constantly, let the sugar boil and come to 305*F, using a candy thermometer. The sugar will start to lump and break apart, and the butter will start to brown, but just keep stirring- the butter and sugar will eventually come together.
When the toffee has reached 305*F and is creamy brown with no lumps, pour it immediately on top of the nuts, spreading it out evenly. Let cool a bit.While the toffee is cooling, melt the chocolate, using either a double boiler or a microwave. Spread the chocolate evenly on top of the chocolate and let the whole thing sit and cool for at least 2-3 hours. You can make this go faster by freezing it, but it’ll have to come to room temperature to be cut evenly.
Heat a sharp knife under running hot water. This will help the toffee cut cleanly (though it will break apart a bit; be forewarned). Slice into squares and store covered in a cool, dry place.
