This is a Toffee
Candy Recipe that I learned from my Grandmother (my motherís mother), when I was
old enough to stay with my grandparents during the summer out in the country.
My Grandma Kruger was a great cook. We would make this toffee candy together because
it was very easy and she taught me how to test candy with a cold glass of
water. We never used a candy thermometer. I don't have the specific
measurements for the nuts and chips, I just have them around use what I need.
Thanks for letting me share this recipe and bringing back some great memories.
Grandma Krugerís Toffee Recipe
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 stick of butter
Chopped Almonds or pecans. Enough to cover the bottom a 9" x 9" pan with some
extra to put on top of the chocolate chips
Melt the sugar and butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil over
medium heat. Boil for seven minutes stirring constantly. Test in cold water.
When the thread cracks in the cold water, pour mixture into a buttered 9" x 9"
pan with chopped nuts in the bottom. Put chocolate chips on top. Cover to
contain the heat to melt the chocolate. Spread the melted chocolate and
sprinkle with remaining chopped nuts. Let cool.
