Easy Homemade Toffee

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups of Almonds
  • 1 pound of unsalted butter (4 sticks)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 bag (12 oz) of semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt flakes

Directions:

  1. Chop up almonds by pulsing them in a food processor.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone pad.
  3. Sprinkle half of the almonds onto the baking sheet.
  4. In a large saucepan, over low heat add the butter, salt and sugar.

  6. Pour the mixture over the almonds on the cookie sheet.
  7. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top and use a spatula to spread the chocolate around.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining chopped almonds over the top of the chocolate layer.
