Serves 24

  • 1cup sugar

  • 1cup butter

  • 2tablespoons water

  • 3⁄4 cup slivered almonds

  • 8ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (equates to a little over 1/2 of a 12 oz. bag)

  • 3⁄4 cup sliced almonds


  • 01

    In a large skillet, melt butter on med. high heat.

  • 02

    **Tip** Bring out a jar of peanut butter and turn it upside down near the skillet to use ONLY as a color guide to know when the mixture is done.

  • 03

    Add sugar and stir until dissolved into the butter.

  • 04

    Add water, pouring it all over the pan.

  • 05

    Bring to a full, frothy boil.

  • 06

    At full boil, cook 1 minute then add slivered almonds.

  • 07

    Stir continuously and slowly in a small circular motion bringing the outside mixture edges to the center as the sides will tend to cook faster than the middle.

  • 08

    As you stir, angle the handle of your spoon down as low as you can to have few air bubbles.

  • 09

    Cook this mixture until it is the color of the inverted peanut butter jar.

  • 10

    **Important** It will brown fast in the end, so don't let it get too dark).

  • 11

    Pour into a 9 X 13 pan. (you could use disposable aluminum pans also).

  • 12

    Let cool completely, remove from pan and pat off any extra butter from both sides with paper towels.

  • 13

    Place on wax paper.

  • 14


  • 15

    Microwave chocolate for 1 minute on high. (be mindful that every microwave is different and you must watch your chocolate closely so that it won't overcook). If a few seconds more are needed to melt completely, do so in small increments.

  • 16

    Coat toffee with chocolate (like frosting) and top with slivered almonds. I only cover one side but you can do both if desired.

  • 17

    Lightly press down almonds to make sure they stick to the chocolate.

  • 18

    Cool on the counter for at least 30 minutes, then put the pan into the refrigerator for 2 hours (You can stack multiple batches on top of each other as long as the chocolate is pretty solid).

  • 19

    Break into pieces after it has hardened and store in a covered container.

  • 20

    Variations: Use different kinds of chips. (mint, white, dark, milk chocolate).
