1 tablespoon golden syrup
60ml water or bourbon
175g chocolate, dark, milk or white, diced

Spread chopped nuts on a baking tray and toast lightly being careful not to burn. Cool.
Put sugar, butter, golden syrup and water into a saucepan and heat over medium heat stirring constantly. Cook until mixture is golden brown or about 150 degrees C on a sugar thermometer.
Working quickly pour the mixture onto a baking tray and let it spread out. Top with chocolate and wait for a minute or so then spread out to cover toffee. Add nuts and lightly press into melted chocolate with a spoon. Leave to cool for several hours.
When completely cool break into chunks, cover and store covered in an airtight container.
