Better Than Anything Toffee” 

Better Than Anything Toffee is a rich and indulgent dessert that lives up to its name. It’s a sweet and buttery toffee that’s topped with chocolate and nuts, making it a truly decadent treat.

To make Better Than Anything Toffee, you’ll start by melting butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted, you’ll add sugar and stir until the mixture is smooth. Next, you’ll bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, and cook it until it reaches a deep golden brown color and reaches the hard-crack stage (about 300°F on a candy thermometer).

Once the toffee is ready, you’ll pour it onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and spread it into an even layer. While the toffee is still hot, you’ll sprinkle it with chocolate chips and let them melt. Once the chocolate is melted, you’ll spread it into an even layer over the toffee and sprinkle it with chopped nuts (such as pecans or almonds).

The toffee is then allowed to cool and harden before being broken into pieces and served. The combination of buttery toffee, creamy chocolate, and crunchy nuts makes Better Than Anything Toffee a truly irresistible treat that’s perfect for any occasion.


1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1 cup (2 sticks)
challenge unsaltd butter
1 cup granulated sugar
½ tsp kosher salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup milk chocolate chips


-Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.
-Spread the chopped pecans in a single layer on top of the parchment.
-Add butter, sugar, and salt to a heavy bottomed 3 quart pot
-Bring to a boil over medium low heat, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar.
-Once the candy is boiling, stir occasionally, slowly and evenly, until the candy has reached 290F to 300F, or “hard crack” on a candy thermometer.
-Once the candy has reached 290F-300F, remove from heat and gently stir in the vanilla extract.
-Carefully pour the mixture over the chopped pecans.
-Let the candy sit for a few minutes, undisturbed, before sprinkling the chocolate chips over the top.
-Cover the baking dish with foil and let sit for 5 minutes or until the chocolate has softened.
-Remove the foil and gently spread the softened chocolate into an even layer. An offset spatula works best for this.
-Place the candy in the refrigerator and let cool completely. Give it at least 2 hours.
-Lift the parchment out of the baking dish and place the toffee on a cutting board or solid surface.
-Use a knife to gently break it into smaller pieces.
