Let’s Celebrate Life - Butter Toffee


  1. Prepare a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper and then butter the parchment paper

  2. In a heavy sauce pan, melt the butter over medium to low heat.

  3. Put a candy thermometer in the pan once the butter is melted.

  4. Add the brown sugar and stir consistently until the mixture reaches 290 degrees. (keep the heat on medium to low, this part might take 10-15 minutes. Hello, biceps!)

  5. Once the mixture reaches 290 degrees, pour into the prepared pan.

  6. Pour room temperature chocolate chips even over the top of the toffee and allow them to melt. Then spread the melted chocolate out evenly over the toffee.

  7. Once it is cool, left out of the pan and break into pieces with a knife.

  8. Enjoy!
