Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Butter a 9 inch square baking dish, and set aside. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar and corn syrup until smooth; add the water and stir. Heat to 290 degrees F (145 degrees C) using a candy thermometer.

  • When the temperature has been reached, stir in 1 cup of the walnuts, and cook for 3 more minutes, stirring constantly. Pour into the prepared pan, and allow to cool. When the toffee is cooled, remove from the pan, and place onto waxed paper. Melt chocolate chips in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, or in the microwave, stirring frequently until smooth.

  • Spread half of the melted chocolate onto one side of the toffee slab, and sprinkle with half of the remaining nuts. Allow to cool until set, then repeat with the other side. Break into bite size pieces when set.

John-These were very easy to make and sooo good. I didn't see where the water was to be added on the directions so I added that in when I added the sugar and corn syrup - I believe that was correct. Thanks again! Read More

I had the same problem! Even made it twice brought the 1st batch to 290 & the 2nd got to 300 - had to throw both away... It is the 1st time I am making toffee with white sugar - don't know if that is giving me the problem or not but going back to my brown sugar recipe... so disappointed! Read More

Recipe doesn't mention the water so that went in with the sugar and syrup. Forgot to put the walnuts in but still turned out great! Read More

This was good even without the extra smearing of chocolate and nuts on top. Read More

My mother used to have this recipe (or one like it) and it was so easy and so good. I went looking for a similar recipe and found this one. It came out just the way I remember it. A lot easier than most candy making and delicious. Read More

Very nice recipe, but it does take some experience to make this type of candy, If you are inexperienced like GAMSJAGER you may want to try making something for the simple such as the pudding poke cake that you rave about- bleh. Thank you for posting this one, it looks lovely as well. Read More

I don't know what went wrong but this turned out to be a dish full of sugary pebbles. I couldn't even remove it from the dish or it would have disintegrated into a mound of gravel. And yes I followed the directions meticulously (even though what to do with the water was not mentioned at all I did as others suggested and added it with the sugar and corn syrup). I've made plenty of candies including toffees but this was a nightmare. I have to wonder why so few reviews on such an old recipe? Is it simply because those who had the same disastrous outcome as myself didn't bother to come back to warn others? Read More
