Grandma’s Toffee

English Toffee Recipe

I am so excited for Christmas! I love to see my daughters light up Christmas morning and this is the first year we will be in our own home for Christmas! I can’t wait!

Well, today I have spent the day cleaning a little and organizing for all the new Christmas stuff we will be bringing in and of course making yummy treats!

I made my first batch of toffee last week thinking it would last till Christmas, Ummm nope…

So I made another batch today.

This is my Grandma Beecher’s recipe.

Guys, it is to die for!

Melt in your mouth candy.

  1. 1 pound of butter
  2. 2 1/2 cups sugar
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 4 T. Karo syrup
  5. 1 large Hershey bar
  6. chopped nuts, whatever kind you like
  1. Grate the Hershey bar into a fine powder. Spread half the chopped nuts on a cookie sheet and then half of the grated chocolate over the nuts. Heat the butter, sugar, water and Karo in a heavy pan to 285 degrees on your candy thermometer. IT WILL BE VERY HOT!!! DON'T GET ANY ON YOUR SKIN!  Just a warning.
  2. Pour the candy mixture over the chocolate and nuts.  Don't scrape the sides of the pan.  Just use what poured out. Sprinkle the rest of the grated chocolate and then the chopped nuts over the hot candy. Set in a cool dry place until it hardens.
  3. Use a butter knife and crack the toffee into pieces.  Enjoy!

 I hope you are all spending the holidays with someone you love and I wish you all the most wonderful Christmas!
