Amazing Homemade Toffee is Easier Than You Think

I found the most amazing thing ever: Homemade Toffee.  I thought it was going to be so hard to make, but it ended up being the simplest thing I have made all year.  So now, I need to go buy more butter.  Seriously.  Stock up on butter and sugar when it’s on sale so you can make Homemade Toffee.  Butter, sugar, and a pinch of salt come together to make the most amazing candy concoction that you’d ever want to try.  The only specialty items you need to make this is a Taylor Classic Line Glass Candy and Deep Fry Thermometer, a Kitchenaid Classic Silicone Spoon Spatula, Red, and some Kirkland Signature Non Stick Parchment Paper.  Really.  That’s it.  I had Homemade Toffee in just a few minutes, and it’s beautiful enough to give as gifts too!

Simple Ingredients Make the Best Homemade Toffee

There are three ingredients that make up the toffee, but the quality of those ingredients is really important.  I used a wonderful butter I recently found that has a great flavor.  Use high quality butter, and it needs to be real butter, not margarine.  I used a granulated white cane sugar, which I use in almost all of my baking.  I used sea salt, and a little more than the recipe called for, as I like a slightly salty toffee.  I coated my Homemade Toffee in chocolate chips, while the candy was still not, then spread them out to cover once they started to melt.  Chopped almonds were sprinkled on top and it became the most amazing, easy candy treat I’ve ever made.

Amazing Homemade Toffee

Amazing Homemade Toffee


  • 1 lb (2 C) butter
  • 2 C granulated sugar
  • ¼ t salt (I use sea salt, and about ½ t)
  • 12 oz chocolate chips (minis work best)
  • 1 C chopped nuts


  1. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter, sugar, and salt over medium heat, stirring until the butter is melted.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Bring to a boil and cook until the mixture turns a dark amber color and temperature has reached 285 degrees F on a candy thermometer inserted into the candy, but free of the bottom of the pan.
  4. Pour the candy onto the prepared pan, using a silicone scraper spatula to scrape the pan.
  5. Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the hot candy and allow to melt for about 2 minutes.
  6. Spread the melted chocolate chips and sprinkle with nuts, pressing down slightly.
  7. Refrigerate to cool the candy.
  8. Break the toffee into pieces and serve, or store in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks.

Homemade Toffee Makes Great Gifts

If you have a kitchen store or even a craft store near you, they almost always have candy boxes of various sizes that you can fill for gifts.  Homemade Toffee makes a phenomenal gift for anyone on your list.  It’s easy and quick to make, you can make multiple batches at a time, and the result is, in my opinion, better than the toffee you get at specialty candy shops.  Surprise someone in your life with a handmade gift of Homemade Toffee!
