Posted By North Star.

Ingredients.

2 1/3 cups granulated sugar
2 cups butter
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted
1 cup (6-ounces) semisweet or milk real chocolate chips

Directions.

1. Butter 15 x 10 x 1-inch jelly roll pan. Combine all ingredients except nuts and chocolate chips in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted.
2. Reduce heat to medium-low. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until candy thermometer reaches 300°F or small amount of mixture dropped into cold water forms hard brittle strands (25 to 40 minutes). Stir in 1 cup nuts.
3. Pour mixture into prepared pan; spread to desired thickness. Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot candy; let stand 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate evenly over candy. Sprinkle with nuts. Cool completely (at least 3 hours). Break into pieces. Store in airtight container in a cool dry place up to three weeks.

Makes 5 dozen candies (2 1/4 pounds).

Tips:

* Test your thermometer in boiling water. If the water boils at a temperature other than 212°F, adjust the temperature accordingly.
* If your toffee separates during cooking, carefully and slowly add about 1/2 cup hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and stir constantly.
* If you prefer a thinner toffee, use two buttered (15 x 10 x 1-inch) pans or cookie sheets and pour half of toffee mixture on each; spread to desired thickness.
