Toffee

Toffee is my husbands absolute favorite thing to splurge on during the holidays. I had a little extra time today and made him a batch. I am going to have to keep him off sweets after the holidays, but for now, he is a happy camper. 
 For those of you who don't know, Toffee is actually really quick and simple to make. It is naturally gluten free, with just 4 ingredients, you can whip up some toffee in 15 minutes. Give it a try!
This recipe is adapted from The Baker Chick

2 sticks butter

1 cup dark brown sugar

1 12 ounce bag Semisweet chocolate chips 
3/4 cup Ground almonds

In large saucepan, combine butter and brown sugar, mix using a wooden spoon until mixture reaches just over 275 on a candy thermometer. 
 When it gets to 275, let it stay there for about a minute, then pour into cookie sheet or baking pan. I used a baking pan lined with parchment. Spread with a non stick spatula.
Melt the chocolate either over a double broiler, or in the microwave for 4 minutes at 50% power. Stir until completely smooth. Then Pour over sugar base. 
Spread with non stick spatula.
Top with almonds.  Cut into pieces.
