Here is a treat sure to impress and perfect for the holidays! It has very few ingredients and is easy to make! Growing up my mom always made this during Christmas time along with lots of other goodies to hand out to neighbors and friends. It is definitely a favorite!
1 C sugar
2 TBS water
1/2 lbs ( 2 sticks) real butter
2 C chocolate chips
1/2 C chopped nuts
Combine first three ingredients in sauce pan. Stir on high until amber color (dark yellow turning brown). If you don't cook it long enough it will be sugary and grainy. I always cook it a little longer than I think it needs because I start to get a little panicked that it is going to burn and take it off too early so let it keep cooking until it is a really nice amber color!!
Pour onto cookie sheet. Spread smooth. Immediately put chocolate on, let melt and spread evenly on top of the toffee.
Sprinkle nuts on, I usually leave some without nuts because I prefer it that way. Let it set. When cool break into pieces by putting knife in straight up and bringing knife down.
