    2 sticks butter

    1 cup sugar

    3 tablespoons warm water

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Mix all ingredients in large skillet. Cook and stir on medium heat until it turns brown. Pour into greased 9x13 pan.

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 cup chopped pecans, almonds, or walnuts

    1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

    10 tablespoons butter

    3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Directions:

    Sprinkle nuts of choice in the bottom of a 9-inch round cake or pie tin, or Pyrex pie plate. Combine sugar and butter in a 1 1/2 quart saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until attaining a 290-F degree temperate on a candy thermometer. Takes about 6 or 7 minutes. Make sure to stir your toffee constantly while melting the brown sugar and butter. Remove the melted toffee from the heat source and cool for 5 minutes. Pour the mixture over the top of the nuts of choice in the round container and spread out in an even layer.

    Immediately sprinkle the top with the chocolate chips. Let them melt from the heat of the toffee, then gently spread the melted chocolate over the top of the hardening candy. If desired, sprinkle a few more chopped nuts on top of the chocolate while it's still soft and warm.

    Cool at room temperature, at least 2 hours, then refrigerate to firm chocolate. Break into pieces and store in an airtight container

    INGREDIENTS:

    1 pound butter

    1 pound sugar

    nuts

    PREPARATION:

    Melt butter. Add sugar and cook until the mixture turns to light brown. It will turn yellow first. Be patient. When it gets to the hard crack stage [300° to 310°], pour into a buttered pan. Add walnuts, or any nuts. Our favorites are macademias! Butter waxed paper and place on cookie sheets. Pour mixture onto the waxed paper and let harden and then crack into pieces.
