Who knew making homemade chocolate toffee could be so easy?! With just 4 ingredients, you can make your own sweet, crunchy and delicious toffee to enjoy!
I have always loved eating toffee. By itself, in cookies, on ice cream. You pretty much can't go wrong with toffee. And haven't you ever noticed that handmade toffee is just the best. Seriously so sweet and crunchy, and let's be honest, addictive.
So I just decided that I needed to be able to make my own homemade handmade toffee, and it turns out it's pretty easy. All you really need is a candy thermometer, which are inexpensive and easy to use. You can go the modern route, with a digital candy thermometer like this one. But I prefer an old school dial-face one like this bad boy. Whichever you choose, be sure it has a kettle clip so that you're not reading the temperature on the bottom of the pot instead of the actual candy.
You can make this crunchy toffee without chocolate, but I don't understand why you'd want to!
Homemade Chocolate Toffee Recipe
Homemade Chocolate Toffee
- 2 cups plus 2 teaspoons butter divided
- 2 cups sugar
- ¼ cup water
- 1 ½ cups milk chocolate chips
- *Optional* 1 ½ cups finely chopped pecans
- Grease a parchment paper lined 15"x10" baking sheet with 2 teaspoons butter.
- In a large, heavy bottom pot, melt remaining butter over medium heat.
- Add sugar and water to the butter. Continue cooking over medium heat and stir continuously until a candy thermometer reaches 300 (hard crack stage).

- Let stand to cool and harden for at least 1 hour.
