A Christmas Recipe


Christmas would not be the same without the delicious home-made treats of the season. So today, I have a yummy something special for you.


Aunt Willie’s Toffee



  • 3 Ozs. Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Lecithin
  • 1/2 cup Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1 bag disks of Dipping Milk Chocolate
  • Pecans chopped to desired amount


    Toast Slivered Almonds in the oven and set aside. Combine in a small, heavy saucepan: Butter, Salt, Sugar, Lecithin, Corn Syrup, and Water. Stir only until a good rolling boil starts. Wipe sides of pan with a wet paper towel wrapped on a spatula. Cook to 282 degrees (a lower temperature will cause toffee to be hard to bite and stick to the teeth). Wipe sides of pot again with a clean wet paper towel wrapped spatula. Add toasted Slivered Almonds and pour onto buttered foil. Top with disks of Dipping Milk Chocolate. As soon as the chocolate melts, spread to cover using the back of a spoon. Sprinkle with chopped Pecans. Press nuts into the chocolate with your hand. Break into pieces when cool. Enjoy!

    The highlighted and underlined instructions are critical. This is an easy recipe.
