About this recipe: Chocolate and almonds top off a rich buttery toffee. A simple recipe that you could easily remember and whip up any time. It might be easier if you use a sugar thermometer the first few times to check if the toffee is ready. I always get compliments and requests for more. Use any type of nut that you like in place of the almonds.
Used different ingredients. I tried to make the base flavor of the toffee more unique by adding 1/2 cup brewed filter coffee and 1 Tablespoon of Kahlua to the sugar as step one. I reduced it a little bit over medium heat before adding any butter. Then I proceeded with the recipe as stated. The flavor is subtle but there. - 14 Dec 2008
