Prep Time5 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time20 mins

 1 lb unsalted butter
 2 cups sugar
 1 pinch salt
 1 cup chocolate chips, melted (I used 54% dark chocolate but any type will do)
 1 cup sliced almonds

1

Line a shallow baking dish with a Silpat or parchment paper.

2

Place a heavy bottom saucepan over medium heat and add the butter, sugar, and salt.

3

Heat the mixture, stirring continuously, until it reaches 300°F. (You'll need to use a candy thermometer to monitor the temperature.)

4

Once it's reached 300°F swirl the mixture to fully combine the ingredients then pour the mixture into the prepared pan and allow to cool to room temperature.

5

While the mixture cools, toast the sliced almonds in a dry pan until lightly golden.

6

Melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave (on med-high heat for 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval).

7

Spread the melted chocolate over the toffee once it has cooled then sprinkle the toasted almonds over the top.

8

Once the chocolate has hardened, break the toffee into irregular pieces. Store in an airtight container.
