Aunt Rose’s Fantastic Butter Toffee
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 15 min.
I have made this toffee for years at Christmas and it is the family's favorite! It is hard to just eat one piece. I have to make at least 3 batches every Christmas and hide from hubby or it would never last for Christmas day! Simply the best!
Excellent recipe! Perfect just as it is. I stopped cooking when it hit 290 degrees. I immediately stirred it well and poured over the chopped chocolate and almonds. Very quickly smoothed and spread the toffee. Sprinkled some chocolate and the ground up almonds over the top. After breaking it up when chilled in the fridge it made a nice sized batch. I'm a huge dark chocolate fan but honestly the milk chocolate compliments the toffee perfectly. I'll leave the recipe as is for us! Best toffee I've ever had!
Gotta try this- only I'll use dark chocolate as my family all prefers that to milk choc.
This recipe is perfect the way it is written. I've made at least two batches each year at Christmas for many years and have gotten many requests for the recipe. Excellent!
I have made this Every year for around thirty years. Only difference, my recipe uses 1/2 cup water and 2 tbsp. White corn syrup. Temperature is critical. I have always pored the toffee, the sprinkled chocolate chips on to, until softened, then spread the chocolate around and sprinkled the sliced almonds on top. Next year I may try this method, would probably work very well. Can’t say how great this is.
I was going to answer AuntRoux but her question was way back in 2010! ;)But for anyone else interested you can make toffee with any nut you please, or none at all!I, myself, prefer walnuts or pecans.
This was delicious. Best of all, I didn't have to run out to the store to buy any special ingredients.
Wonderful recipe, but I was wondering if it could be made with other nuts like pecan, walnuts, macadamia, etc.Looks beautiful in that jar, and a perfect recipe for the Holidays.Thanks to all who respond!
I make this by the batches at Christmas time and give it as gifts. Everyone asks for the recipe. It is by far the best candy I have ever made!
This is the best! I have given it for gifts several times and always have rave reviews. It is very easy to make. I like to make it in a 9x13 pan for a little thicker toffee, but that is just my personal preference. Thank you Aunt Rose wherever you are.
