  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • In large, heavy bottomed saucepan, add butter, sugar, and salt. Turn heat on medium and stir until butter is melted. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is dark amber and temperature reaches 285 °F.

  • As soon as toffee reaches temperature, pour onto lined baking sheet. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top, allow to soften for 1 - 2 minutes, then spread to even layer. Sprinkle nuts over chocolate, press in slightly, using wax paper or plastic to protect hand.
