Ingredients
  • 2 C sugar
  • 2 C butter
  • 6 TB water
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Fill a small bowl with ice water and set aside.
  2. Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet.
  3. Add sugar, water, vanilla, and salt, stirring continously.
  4. Continue to cook and stir for about 15 minutes.
  5. Test a drop in the ice water and wait a few seconds. Candy should be hard but easy to break.
  6. Remove from heat and pour onto a baking sheet lined with parchment or silpat.
  7. Spread to desired thickness.
  8. Allow to cool completely. Place in the fridge or oven to cool quickly.
Notes
If desired, add crushed toasted nuts to your baking sheet before pouring on the toffee, or sprinkle some chocolate chips on top, let them melt, and spread!
