English Toffee

Prep Time:

5 Minutes

Cook Time:

30 mintues






  • 1 cup butter

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • ¼ cup water

  • 8 oz. milk chocolate candy bar (a good quality milk chocolate bar, the thin ones are the

  • best)

  • ½ cup chopped or ground walnuts


  1. Combine butter, sugar and water in a heavy saucepan.

  2. Cover and bring to a boil.

  3. Cook uncovered, while stirring constantly (very important), until mixture darkens slightly,

  4. Pour onto a buttered cookie sheet (use butter not Pam) and l

  5. Immediately lay broken

  6. Carefully spread

  7. It is helpful if you pat the walnuts lightly into the melted chocolate so that the

    nuts won’t fall off when you serve the finished treat.

  8. Cool in the refrigerator (You can cool it on the counter, but it takes too long for me; I’m too impatient).

  9. Break into serving size pieces, but be careful when doing this because sometimes the chocolate will separate from the toffee.

    If that happens, don’t stress – it is still edible.
