Sweet and salty butter toffee recipe from Nestle

Once again, Nestle comes through with an absolutely scrumptious recipe! Toffee is a huge weakness of mine and this recipe is fabulous.

SWEET AND SALTY BUTTER TOFFEE
  • Parchment paper or aluminum foil 
  • 30 saltine crackers 
  • 1 (2 sticks) cup butter 
  • 1 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 1/2 (9 ounces) cups NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels 
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped toasted almonds 
Directions: 
LINE a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil; place crackers on prepared baking sheet 5 across and 6 down to form a 10 x 12-inch rectangle. 
COMBINE butter, sugar and salt in 2-quart, heavy-duty saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until candy thermometer reaches 300° F (this should take about 20 minutes from the time you turn on the burner). It should be a rich, golden amber color. Remove from heat; immediately pour mixture over crackers. Sprinkle evenly with morsels. Let stand for 5 minutes. Spread melted morsels over toffee with metal spatula or back of spoon. Sprinkle with almonds.
COOL for 2 hours before breaking into 30 pieces. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
