    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.

    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)
