    I have been making this toffee as a Christmas gift for years. Toffee base with a layer of chocolate then comes the nuts.

    Serves: 10 

    • 180g nuts, chopped e.g. hazelnuts, almonds or pecans
    • 200g sugar
    • 260g butter
    • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
    • 60ml water or bourbon
    • 175g chocolate, dark, milk or white, diced

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Spread chopped nuts on a baking tray and toast lightly being careful not to burn. Cool.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. When completely cool break into chunks, cover and store covered in an airtight container.

    This truly is wonderful stuff-I think it just may be responsible for the 5 extra lbs. I manage to gain every Christmas!! It's really so easy to make and give as gifts. Your friends and family will love you for it!!  -  09 Nov 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Twice as much fat as is needed. Creates a small amount of toffee in a bath of fat. We had to pour off the fat to salvage it. Compare it to any other recipe and you'll see! Avoid.  -  10 Nov 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
