REC - Almond Toffee

Discussion in 'Food and nutrition' started by Damsel in dis Dress, Dec 23, 2005.

  1. I've played with Barb's toffee recipe so much, the only original
    ingredients left intact are the butter and the brown sugar. After
    three batches with chocolate, I decided I don't care for the
    chocolate. Here's what I came up with.

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1/2 cup sliced almonds
    1/2 cup butter
    3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    1/2 cup sliced almonds

    Butter the bottom of an 8-inch square pan. Sprinkle with sliced
    almonds (the broken pieces work well here).

    Combine butter and brown sugar in a small, heavy saucepan and cook at
    a medium boil for 7 minutes, stirring constantly. At the last moment,
    quickly add almond extract. Immediately pour toffee over nuts,
    spreading if necessary. Sprinkle almond slices (the nice ones) over
    the hot toffee. Cool and break into pieces. If the toffee remains
    soft, cut into 16 squares.
