How to make toffee with chocolate?
Well I have been talking a lot about this amazing recipe, right?
It definitely tastes good and it absolutely is bound to be a treat to yourself.
So, here I give you the best recipe that is there in the world to make the best toffee with chocolate that you can ever taste.
So, no more hassle and here are the ingredients.
- 1 ¼ cups of butter
- 1 ¼ cups of sugar
- ½ teaspoon of vanilla
- A pinch of salt
- 2 cups of semisweet chocolate
- ½ cup of chopped almonds
- ½ cup of toasted and chopped pecans
A little bit of cashew or nuts will also add more taste, but it is definitely up to you to decide what you need to have and does not need to have in your toffee treat.
When you are ready with all the ingredients in the list, you can start with the following steps;
- First you have to line a baking sheet with a parchment paper, in a saucepan. Heat it in a medium level.
- Mix butter, sugar, vanilla and salt in a bowl and mix them thoroughly in a very medium heat stirring constantly with a whisk. Make sure that you do not stop the mixing for any reason at all. Do this for about 12 to 15 minutes.
- Pour the mixture to a baking sheet and top it completely with chocolate chips. Let it stay for about two minutes so that the chocolate will start melting, and create a layer on top of the toffees.
- Once it has spread completely and smoothly cover the entire surface with nuts, almonds, pecans and cashews. You can even sprinkle some flaky sea salt or icing sugar on top of it to give it a more gorgeous look.
- Let it set in the refrigerator for about an hour, then cut into pieces and enjoy!!!
See, easy – peasy right?
What I gave above is a very simple toffee with chocolate recipe that even a small kid can get tight without any trouble at all.
But there are more varieties of this deliciousness, and you can definitely change this recipe by adding more ingredients according to your taste.
For an example, you can try it with some mints.
There are white chocolate toffees, dark chocolate toffees, or those that are made with coconut (simply add a layer of shredded coconut on top), the ones with dark sugar and even apple sticks covered in toffee mixture and then dripped in chocolate syrup.
All these are definitely going to take you on a journey to Disneyland. Well, eating all these at one day will make you look for medicine for high sugar. So, take it easy, and try them at home when you are free (hope you are not free everyday), and enjoy with your whole family.
