Toffee Recipe

User Rating 2 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


This buttery toffee is made with butter and sugar, with your choice of nuts. This recipe comes from Judy's cousin, Virginia


  • 1 pound butter
  • 1 pound sugar
  • nuts


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.

This is truly wonderful! Peanuts or walnuts work just as well, or any of your favorites - cashews are fantastic.

grainy candy, Member Luckygirlmo

Once any candy comes to a boil, do not stir the sides of the pan. The sugar crystals falling into the pan cause it to be grainy. Hope this helped!
