Easy Microwave Toffee
Prep Time: 5 min | Cook Time: 10 min | Servings: 1 (792 g)


1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup
2 tablespoons water
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup whole untoasted almonds, , coarsely chopped
1/4 cup toasted almonds, finely chopped, for topping
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


1 Combine butter, brown sugar, sugar, corn syrup, salt and water.

2 Microwave on high 2-2 minutes until butter is melted.

3 Stir well until butter and sugar are completely blended.

4 Stir in 1/2 cup almonds.

5 Microwave on high for 7 to 9 more minutes until the temperature reaches 300F. (Start checking temperature at 6 min. then continue checking at 30 second intervals.)

6 Pour on to a foil-lined 18 x 13 in. baking sheet. Wait 1 to 2 minutes.

7 Sprinkle chocolate on top. Wait until chips melt (about 2 minutes) and spread to cover toffee..

8 Sprinkle the remaining finely chopped almonds on the top of the chocolate. (At this point you can score it into long pieces to make cutting it easier).

9 Let toffee sit for about 15 to 20 minutes and then refrigerate until completely cool and chocolate is set. (about 30 to 60 min.) Then break it up into small pieces. (Or cut along the scored lines and then cut each of these into squares.)

Notes: Perfect! and so easy.
