On Day 5th of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies , I bring to you simple recipe of English Toffee..We love English Toffee!!!

This recipe is so simple and yet the candy looks so professional. This is one of our favorite treats to give away during the holidays. Try some for yourself!

This tasty toffee is covered in chocolate and sprinkled with nuts…and it won’t stick to your teeth! We love english toffee for its smooth and buttery caramel flavor, its crunchy texture, and its coating of chocolate and toasted almonds.

Here is what You will need :

1cup unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar ( you can even use granulated white sugar )
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract ( optional )
1 cup milk chocolate chips ( I used semi sweet )
1 cup un blanched almonds crushed into pieces .

Method :

Line a 11×7 cookie sheet with foil and sprinkle 1/2 cup of toasted almonds in the pan on the foil. In heavy saucepan melt butter. Add sugar. Cook and stir over medium-high heat to boiling.
Cook and stir over medium heat to 290 degrees using a candy thermometer (soft-crack stage). It takes around 12-15 mins
Watch carefully as it can burn easily after 280 degrees.
Remove from heat mix in vanilla extract if using and pour mixture over the nuts in the pan
Let stand 2 minutes .
Sprinkle with chocolate chips and let the stand for 1 to 2 minutes. When softened, spread chocolate over mixture. Sprinkle the chocolate with nuts.
