Yes this is a lot of butter…. You will need:
Bowl of ICE to test the caramel sauce
Melt butter in a HEAVY sauce pan….get your bowl of ice ready! Butter the sides of a HEAVY saucepan. Melt butter in saucepan, then add sugar, corn syrup, and water. Cook over MED-LOW heat, stirring consistently, until sugar is dissolved.
Bring mixture to a boil over medium-LOW heat, stirring and scraping bottom of pot consistently until the sugar is dissolved. Then turn up the heat to MED-HIGH and bring to boil. Once mixture boils, reduce heat to medium and continue cooking….about 15 minutes.
Look at how light and creamy the mixture looks at the beginning. The ice test will result in a caramel sauce texture. Now, watch the color and texture change in the next few steps….
Drip some hot toffee onto the ice cubes. When it cools, see if it is crunchy. After 8 minutes, the ice test results in a chewy caramel texture. Keep stirring….it’s going to start turning a slightly darker caramel color.
This is perfect! It breaks in your mouth and is crunchy…but your teeth don’t stick together. Look carefully and you can see the first toffee ice test on the right side of the bowl. Compare the difference in color between the first ice test when the mixture was a caramel sauce consistency and the last test when the toffee is crunchy and amazing. This is how much the color will change. PERFECT!
Pour hot toffee mixture over toasted almonds. Incidentally….this picture was super hard to get….this shows how much I love you all! Try pouring boiling hot toffee with one hand and taking a picture with the other…a serious juggling act!
Sprinkle with a mixture of milk and semi-sweet chocolate chips….Let chocolate soften for a few minutes. When chocolate is warmed, spread evenly over toffee….delish! This looks amazing! The chocolate chips spread perfectly!
Carefully break toffee into small pieces using a knife and mallet. Enjoy!
