Home Made Toffee

a bowl of home made toffee candy

Okay, I know this post has absolutely nothing to do with losing weight or being healthy, but I have been making so many sweets for the holidays, I just had to post this one.

This is a batch of home made toffee candy that is made of all natural ingredients, so that part is good.

The first time I made this candy, I was stirring away with a plastic spoon, and the next thing I knew, my spoon was gone. All that was left was a piece of the stick that was the handle.

The rest of it had melted into the sugar and butter mixture, and this was a thick spoon too.

So it's best to use a wooden one for this candy as it gets very hot.

You will need:

1 cup of real butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat the butter and sugar in a heavy saucepan to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly.
Boil for 6 minutes or until golden colored, still stirring constantly. Pour into a buttered 9 inch pan and let stand for three minutes. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top and let stand for 5 minutes. When they are shiny, spread the chocolate evenly over the surface. Cool completely in the refrigerator. Remove the candy and break it in small pieces. Store in the refrigerator.

So rich and so addictive, this home made toffee is so delicious.

Don't eat too much though - that butter is so bad for diets!
