This is such a great, classic Christmas time treat! I rarely see it made any other time of year yet Christmas just isn't quite the same without it. I have wonderful memories of making this with my sister when we were new young mom's cooking up a storm of Christmas goodies together. What I wouldn't give to spend a day cooking with her again! While she's living on the other side of the world, I love making this toffee, knowing she's in her kitchen making her Christmas toffee too!
1 c real butter
1 c sugar
2 Tb water
1 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Line a 9x13" baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Mix butter, sugar and water and stir constantly over high heat until it starts to turn a caramel color, about 5-7 minutes from the time that it starts to boil. Pour into prepared baking dish. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips on top and spread with a spoon until melted and smooth. Sprinkle with nuts. Refrigerate until cool, then pull ends of aluminum foil up to remove toffee from the dish and break into pieces.
