Never Fail Toffee

Doesn't this look scrumptious?

Come on over and I'll share.

Oh I know, the weather is frightful today, so go ahead and stay home and make some yourself.

Never Fail Toffee
1 cup sugar
2 sticks of butter
3 Tbsp water
1 Hershey chocolate Bar
Walnuts chopped fine

Cook the sugar, butter and water on medium high heat until it reaches hard crack stage (300 degrees).
First it starts out all pretty and buttery...

then turns tan, pulls away from the pan and sometimes smokes.

Once it reaches the hard crack stage, pour it into a buttered 9x9 pan. Let it set for 10 minutes.

Then add 1 Hershey's chocolate bar on top,

let it melt, then spread it out evenly over the top.

Now sprinkle walnuts all over.

Let it set until hardens, usually overnight. I often stick it in the refrigerator. Use a knife to break it into bite-sized pieces. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator, for future snacking.
