I made this recipe for Christmas gifts and they were a huge hit! I used salted butter and Nestle's Dark Chocolate chips. I did take this off the heat just before the thermometer read 300. It was darkening fast and I didn't want it to scorch -- plus I like toffee that is not really brittle. I kept our portion in the refrigerator in a tightly closed container. This is a great recipe!
