This old-fashioned, melt-in-your mouth recipe for toffee is sure to delight your gang when they get the urge for nibbling. And it makes a super edible homemade gift for the boss or anybody you want to impress!

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup pecans, finely chopped, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips

What to Do

  1. Coat a 10" x 15" rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a soup pot, combine butter, sugar, and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil 3 to 4 minutes, until mixture reaches the hard crack stage (see Note), stirring constantly.
  3. Remove mixture from heat and stir in 1/2 cup pecans and the vanilla; quickly spread over baking sheet. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over mixture and allow to melt; use a knife to spread melted chocolate over toffee, covering it completely.
  4. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup pecans over melted chocolate then chill at least 1 hour, or until chocolate is firm. Break into bite-sized pieces and serve, or store in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Makes about 1-1/2 pounds.


To test for the hard crack stage, drop a bit of the mixture from a teaspoon into a glass of cold water. If it forms a ball that hardens in the water, then it has reached the hard crack stage. If not, continue to cook mixture a bit longer then test it again.
