Doni’s English Toffee

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or milk chocolate or even white chocolate)
1 cup chopped nuts

In a large pot, stirring continuously, cook butter and brown sugar over medium until candy thermometer reaches 290 degrees.

Remove from heat and spread onto a heavy, buttered cookie sheet (Or a slab of cold marble).

Sprinkle chocolate pieces on top of the hot toffee. Let stand 1 to 2 minutes, to allow chocolate to melt.

Spread melted chocolate over the toffee. Sprinkle nuts on top. Let sit in a cool place to harden.

Use a heavy knife to cut into pieces. Makes about 1 pound.
