This toffee was shown on the Food Network on Paula Deen's show, and was one of her holiday gift ideas. It is EXCELLENT and I also agree that it makes a delicious gift. Note: Make sure to heat the butter mixture for a full 10 minutes... if the mixture is removed too soon, it will granulate... it happened to me the 1st time I made this recipe.

Recipe Ingredients for Paula Deen's English Toffee

14 tbsp butter
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp cold water
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
6 ounce semi-sweet chocolate chips

Recipe Directions for Paula Deen's English Toffee

  1. Generously butter a cookie sheet.

  2. Put butter, sugar, and water in a heavy pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Bring to a bubbling boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, about 10 minutes. Remove spoon from pan, and cook to a very brittle stage (300 degrees to 310 degrees F on a candy thermometer). Or, make a cold water test: candy will separate into hard, brittle threads when dropped in cold water. Remove from heat and add nuts to mixture. Add vanilla and salt. Pour onto prepared cookie sheet and spread to 1/4-inch thickness. Cool slightly, top with chocolate chips or chocolate bars, and spread as it melts. Cool completely and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
