Christmas Cookies – Chocolate topped Toffee

KrisandLarry.com presents 6 different Christmas cookies/desserts for your cookie exchanges – Chocolate topped Toffee

Another tasty treat in our house, Although we do not make it terribly often as it is very rich.

It is a GREAT gift wrapped up in a bag with a bow for a last minute gift for someone this Christmas.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1-1/4 Cups  (2-1/2 sticks) butter
  • 1-1/4 Cups  granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt (I use pink Himalayan)
  • 2 Cups  semisweet chocolate chips
  • Optional: 1 Cup  toasted chopped almonds, pecans or peanuts (or a mixture – )
  • Pink Himalayan or Flaky sea salt, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Do not skip this step or you will be stuck to everything!!!!
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Let butter melt and sugar dissolve and bring to a boil, then cook, stirring constantly with a whisk, so the butter and sugar don’t separate, until mixture turns a medium amber and is thick, 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. Pour toffee mixture onto a prepared baking sheet and immediately top all over with chocolate chips. Let sit 2 minutes so chocolate begins to melt, then spread chocolate all over with a spatula to create a layer on top of toffee.
  4. Sprinkle all over with almonds and pecans (use chopped crumbs too for nice texture!) and salt.
  5. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour, then cut or break into pieces and serve.
