A delicious candy that really has no business on a diet site ... A delicious candy that really has no business on a diet site ...
Number of Servings: 15


    1 cup sugar
    1 cup butter
    1 tablespoon water
    3/4 cup slivered almonds
    1 Hershey Chocolate Bar

    2 edged cookie sheets
    Parchment paper


My family never uses a thermometer for this recipe. I find that waiting for it to smoke & then counting to ten is usually a pretty good gauge for when it needs to be poured. My father's trick is to wait until the candy looks "exactly like peanut butter." It might take a few tries for you to figure it out - but it's so worth it!


Cover two edged cookie pans with parchment paper. Heat the sugar, butter, and water in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Heat to the "hard-crack" stage, or 300-320 degrees fahrenheit. When the candy starts to smoke, count to ten, then pour candy out onto parchment-lined pan. Break up the chocolate and spread half on top of the toffee as soon as the heat from the candy melts it. Sprinkle with almonds. If you wish to put chocolate & almonds on the other side of the candy, flip the candy onto the other cookie sheet and cover the other side. Once the candy is cooled, you can break it up and serve!
