I have been making Toffee for Christmas give-away's for YEARS! MOST important- you MUST use butter. At first you may want to use half of this recipe. Never use more than the 2 cups of butter/sugar. It just doesn't work. People who get separation are probably using margarine. My twist - I chop walnuts and put them on the baking sheet. About 1 1/2 cups scattered around so the sheet is covered but there are openings in between. As your butter/sugar mixture comes to temp, (do not stop stiring), you will see a VERY slight smoke. DRIZZLE immediatley over nuts. Then top with choc. chips. Wait a minute or two, then spread the chocolate with the back of a spoon. This will give you pretty swirls. Sometimes I will sprinkle a few chopped nuts ontop. After cool break into pieces. If you used alot of nuts, you may have to cut into pieces. If you spread the nuts a bit thinner, you can poke the toffee with the tip of a sharp knife. It will break into nice irregular pieces. This is just the best stuff! And now all my friends expect it every year. Start your own tradition!
