Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 cup butter, softened, divided

Nutritional Facts

2 ounces equals 381 calories, 29 g fat (13 g saturated fat), 47 mg cholesterol, 228 mg sodium, 28 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. Line an 11-in. x 7-in. pan with foil and grease the foil with 1 tablespoon butter. Arrange almonds evenly in pan; set aside.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, salt and remaining butter. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until mixture is caramel-colored and a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage). Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Immediately pour over almonds. Cool completely.
  3. Spread melted chocolate over toffee; sprinkle with walnuts. Let stand until set. Break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 1-1/2 pounds.
Editor's Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
