Homemade candy can be easy to make—just try this five-ingredient toffee. It's great for holiday gift-giving!

Ingredients

1
cup sugar
1
cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces
1/4
cup water
1/2
cup semisweet, dark or milk chocolate chips
1/2
cup finely chopped pecans

Directions

  • 1 In heavy 2-quart saucepan, heat sugar, butter and water to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat to medium. Cook about 13 minutes, stirring constantly, to 300°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water separates into hard, brittle threads that break easily. (Watch carefully so mixture does not burn.)
  • 2 Immediately pour toffee onto ungreased large cookie sheet. If necessary, quickly spread mixture to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle with chocolate chips; let stand about 1 minute or until chips are completely softened. Spread softened chocolate evenly over toffee. Sprinkle with pecans.
  • 3 Let stand at room temperature about 1 hour, or refrigerate if desired, until firm. Break into bite-size pieces. Store tightly covered at room temperature.

Expert Tips

Packaging gifts for the holidays can be as fun as making them. Wrap coffee tins with holiday paper or foil. Fill with Toffee, separating layers with colored tissue paper or waxed paper.
