    What is toffee? Toffee is one of the holiday’s most time honored traditions. Butter and sugar simmered to an amber glow and then cooled to crunchy deliciousness. Basically hardened caramel. I took traditional toffee up one notch by adding candy!

    Who would have thought by adding one simple thing I would end up with a whole other delicious recipe?!

    Although toffee is a simple recipe, many have trouble with the actual preparation. Butter and sugar will separate if not continually stirred.

    This process can take up 15-20 minutes. A pinch of salt with stabilize the mixture, but not to the point where stirring is not required.

    Unlike caramel, that has a very distinct no stirring instruction. After some time, the butter will brown and the sugar will caramelize resulting in an amber color. A great tip to remember is to use a wooden spoon to prevent sticking or melting.

    NESTLÉ® Butterfinger is toffee-like but actually made with peanuts (and sugar and butter, of course.) So really Candy Toffee is layered toffee, chocolate and more peanut toffee. Delicious!

    You can use whatever NESTLÉ® Stand Up Bags you want like Crunch Bars or Raisinets. I got all of the ingredients I needed at Dollar General, including a Digiorno Pizza so I could focus on my baking and not dinner!

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt. Let butter melt and then cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
    • Continue to stir until mixture turns a dark amber, 15 to 20 minutes. This may take some time, be patient. Toffee mixture should be dark in color and very thick.
    • Pour toffee mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and immediately top all over with NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels. Let sit 2 minutes so chocolate begins to melt, then spread chocolate with a spatula.
    • Top melted chocolate with chopped NESTLÉ® Butterfinger.
    • Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour, then cut or break into pieces and serve.
