Holiday Toffee


1 cup almonds 

1 cup butter 

1 cup sugar 

¼ tsp salt 

½ tsp vanilla 

1 (12 oz) package milk chocolate chips  

¼ cup finely chopped pecans 


  1. Toast almonds by spreading them in a single layer on a plate and microwaving on high for 2-3 minutes (stir after each minute).

  1. In a heavy 2-quart saucepan combine butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the butter is melted. Continue cooking for approximately 7-10 minutes, until candy is the color of the brown skin on the almonds (it will start smoking slightly).

Wai tone minute and spread the melted chocolate until it is smooth. Sprinkle with pecans. Let cool and break into pieces. Store in a tightly covered container in cool place or refrigerator.
