English Toffee

Here is a recipe for candy that the girls and I just made. It turned out really yummy.
1/2 lb. Butter (no substitute) 3 T. Karo syrup 1 T. cold water 1 c. sugar 1 1/2 c chopped nuts 1 lg Hershey bar ( or a bunch of choc. chips)
Place 1/2 of nuts on wax paper about the size of 13 x 9 " pan. Mix butter, sugar, syrup and water in heavy sauce pan. cook over high heat until brittle when tested in cold water( soft crack on my thermometer) . Pour hot candy over nuts. put broken chocolate over hot candy and spread. top with remaining nuts. break into pieces when cooled.
for part of mine I put chopped up pieces of candy can with the nut layers. I used the pampered chef chopper thingy.

This picture with the beautiful baby hand was because he saw me taking pictures of it and thought he should help himself to some. It's the sweetest picture.
