  • 1
    Heat sugar, butter and water to boiling in heavy 2-quart saucepan, 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. (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 in airtight container.

Expert Tips

  • For gift giving, fill decorative tins with Toffee, separating layers with colored plastic wrap, colored tissue paper or waxed paper.
  • When making Toffee, a long spatula with a narrow metal blade is a good tool to have close by. You’ll use it to both spread the toffee and the melted chocolate chips quickly and easily.
