Almond Butter Toffee
Recipe Theme
October: Homemade candy
Southern Pines EC
1 cup roasted almonds, slivered (divided)
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon baking soda
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, grated
Sprinkle 3/4 cups of almonds in a buttered 9-inch x 13-inch pan. Melt butter on the stovetop in a medium saucepan; add sugars and water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Continue cooking on medium high heat and occasionally stirring to 295 degrees or when a little dropped in cold water becomes brittle immediately. (It will smell almost burnt, and the color will be a dark tan.) Remove from heat. Stir in baking soda. Pour carefully over almonds in pan. Let cool 5 minutes. Sprinkle chocolate on top. When chocolate has melted, spread it out evenly with spatula. Sprinkle rest of almonds on top of chocolate. Cool. Break into pieces.
