Butter Toffee with Roasted Almonds Recipe 

Christmas in July!

     There are few things I love as much as chocolate...but one of those things is Butter Toffee.  Toffee is creamy and crisp!  Layer that delightful toffee with a smattering of roasted almonds for the perfect treat.  Fantastic treat for any day or time of the year.  Keep this one pinned for the Christmas holidays for sure!  It's a sweet treat any time of year.  
When my youngest was little, we discovered he is allergic to chocolate...so other "treat" alternatives needed to be found.  Toffee is something everyone can agree on.  It's fabulous even without a chocolate coating.  My son is no longer allergic to chocolate, which has been such a relief to him.

Ingredients:

2 sticks (1 cup) Real Butter
1 1/3 cups of Granulated Sugar
4 Tablespoons of Corn Syrup
4 Tablespoons of Water

Roasted Almonds to line the tray
(spread on baking sheet...about 275* for 30 minutes or so, turning every 10) 

And a silicone baking sheet...or aluminum foil lined baking sheet

You also need a thick bottomed pan.
(not a copper bottom...they burn too fast)



     Chop up the almonds with a knife and place them on your baking sheet or fold the edges of a piece of aluminum foil up.  Spread them around so they are essentially one layer thick.
      Place butter, corn syrup, sugar and the water in your thick bottomed pan.  My sauce pan is a bit small...but it still works!  Turn the burner on high heat.
     Stir it gently as it melts together...stay close because this is a very quick process.
      It will begin to foam and bubble...it will rise high in the pan.  Stir it continuously.
 See what I mean...the mixture barely fits!
 Then it will begin to thicken and pull back inside the pan.  
 Let it rapid boil and stir it continuously.
     Then, almost all at the same time...it will get quite thick, turn tan color and begin to smoke!  It's done!!!  Remove from heat immediately!
      Pour directly on top of the chopped almonds.  Or just on a baking sheet if you don't want nuts.  You can dip in chocolate if desired, but we love those roasted almonds.  Toffee is actually best if left overnight.  It's so hard to wait until the next day to even taste a sample...but it's tastier if you do.
