No candy thermometer needed here! Thanks to the microwave, you can have homemade toffee in just 20 minutes.

What You'll Need:
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped unsalted peanuts, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup peanut butter-and-milk chocolate chips
What To Do:
  1. Spread 1/2 cup chopped peanuts into a 9-inch circle on a lightly greased baking sheet.
     
  2. Coat top 2-inches of a 2-1/2-quart microwave-safe glass bowl with butter; place remaining butter in bowl. Add sugar and 1/4 cup water to bowl. (Do not stir.) Microwave at HIGH 8 minutes or just until mixture begins to turn light brown; carefully pour over peanuts on baking sheet.
     
  3. Sprinkle with chips; let stand 1 minute. Spread melted chips evenly over peanut mixture, and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup chopped peanuts. Chill 2 hours or until firm. Break into bite-sized pieces. Store in an airtight container.
