Homemade toffee is a Christmas tradition at our house. I make it really thin, with an equal layer of chocolate and a dusting of nuts. Here is my twist on this holiday favorite! ~Amy

Sea Salt, White Chocolate, Almond Toffee

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp corn syrup
1/4 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 -2 cups good quality white chocolate pieces, Callebaut
1/4 cup finely chopped dry roasted almonds
Flake sea salt

Butter a large cookie sheet. Set aside.
Butter the sides of a medium sized saucepan.
Melt butter over medium heat. Stir in sugar, water and corn syrup. Cook stirring constantly until it reaches soft crack* 280 degrees. Tip*
Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. Pour hot candy into prepared baking sheet. Spread quickly with metal spatula, pulling edges to make a nice thin layer. Immediately sprinkle chocolate over the top. Let it sit a couple of minutes, then spread chocolate evenly to coat. Sprinkle lightly nuts. Sprinkle lightly with crushed sea salt flakes And refrigerate to cool completely.

*Grandma’s Tip
For perfect candy, cook the candy until it reaches the exact color of peanut butter.
