My English Toffee

1 stick of butter plus 6 T. of butter
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 c. pecans or almonds in a plastic bag using rolling pin!
1 t. vanilla extract
Dash salt
1 (6 oz.) bag semisweet chocolate chips or thin chocolate bars

Generously butter a cookie sheet.

Put butter, sugar, and water in a heavy pan or skillet over medium-high heat
Bring to a bubbling boil, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, about 10 minutes.
Remove spoon from pan, and cook to a very brittle stage (300 degrees to 310 degrees F on a candy thermometer).
Or, make a cold water test: candy will separate into hard, brittle threads when dropped in cold water. Remove from heat and add nuts to mixture.
Add vanilla
Pour onto prepared cookie sheet and spread to 1/4-inch thickness.
Cool slightly, top with chocolate chips or chocolate bars, and spread as it melts.
Cool completely and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container.
very easy to make and its goes fast, so have everything ready!
