Easy English Toffee
This recipe is so simple it almost makes itself. I have been making this for several years and it turns out great every time. It taste just like a Heath Bar.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup slivered almond
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon light Karo syrup
5 Hershey Bars
~ Combine all ingredients except the Hershey Bars.
~ Cook in heavy pan over high heat.
~ Stir until shade darker than brown sugar- about 10 to 12 minutes (less time if you are not using a heavy pan).
~ Pour onto cookie sheet (which I always spray with a light coating of cooking spray) and spread with back of wooden spoon to all edges.
~ Crush five Hershey Bars and spread over the top (while the toffee is still hot).
~ Refrigerate immediately for about an hour or until cool.
~ When harden, break into pieces and store in air tight container.
Best if kept in refrigerator.
