Toffee Butter Crunch

Because of the amount of butter in this candy recipe, the toffee does not stick to the unbuttered foil.

  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds or pecans, toasted
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon light-colored corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate pieces

Watch carefully after 280 degree F to prevent scorching. Remove saucepan from heat; remove thermometer. Pour candy into the prepared pan.
