The Best Toffee I’ve Made in a Long Time

December 9, 2009

Brenna’s first Christmas.

I found this recipe on SmitenKitchen’s blog.  Oh my….it is very very good.  BrazenBites would love this one….if she didn’t have to watch her sugar.

COFFEE TOFFEE

1 cup butter

1/2 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 tsp molasses

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 tsp espresso powder

1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1/2 cup chopped nuts

In a heavy saucepan on medium heat,  cook butter, sugars, molasses, salt and espresso powder, stirring,  until 300 on a candy thermometer.  Pour immediately onto a greased cookie sheet.  Sprinkle with chocolate chips and when softened spread on top of toffee until smooth.  Sprinkle with nuts.  Cool and then break into pieces.

As you can tell. I didn’t use the nuts.  It is too good.  I signed up to do a cookie exchange through Molly from batter splattered and I think these may just go in the box.  That is…if I can keep my Honey out of the candy.  Guess I could make some more.
