Total time

0 minutes




Sides, Dessert


  • 2 (1 cup) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup chopped Walnuts
  • 1 rounded cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts for garnish


  1. Line a square 9x9 baking pan with foil, leaving the ends overlapping the edges so you can lift the toffee out when it has set for easier cutting.
  2. Put the butter and sugar in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  3. Gently boil the mixture, stirring almost constantly, until it darkens in color and reaches 285F on a candy thermometer.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped walnuts. Pour the hot candy into the prepared pan, smoothing out with a spatula. Be very careful as this is very hot.
  5. Scatter the chocolate chips evenly across the surface of the toffee and let sit for a couple of minutes to let the chocolate melt. Spread the chocolate out evenly with a spreader. Then top with chopped nuts, pressing them in gently so they will stick to the chocolate.
  6. Let cool until set, either at room temperature, or in the refrigerator.
  7. Remove the foil and cut into pieces.
