Pecan Toffee

Yield 1 3/4 pounds

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans, divided
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 5 (1.55-ounce) milk chocolate bars, broken into small pieces

How to Make It

  1. Line a 15- x 10-inch jellyroll pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil; lightly grease foil. Sprinkle with 1 cup pecans to within 1 inch of edges.

  2. Bring sugar, butter, and 1/3 cup water to a boil in a heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, 12 minutes or until a candy thermometer registers 310° (hard crack stage). Pour over pecans; sprinkle with chocolate pieces. Let stand 30 seconds.

  3. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pecans. Chill 30 minutes. Break up toffee using a mallet or rolling pin. Store in an airtight container.
