Valentine's Toffee Recipe
- Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. Stir in sugar. Once butter and sugar melts, cook for 10 minutes or until color turns from pale yellow to light brown.
- If you have a candy thermometer, check that your butter and sugar mixture reaches at least 285 degrees. If not, the toffee consistency won’t be correct and it will be gooey rather than hard.
- Stir in vanilla extract and salt. Pour the butter/sugar immediately into a parchment lined 9x11 inch baking pan.
- Sprinkle chocolate chips over the top of the warm butter/sugar mixture. Wait 5 minutes, then spread out chocolate for a smooth layer.
- Sprinkle with Oreos, chocolate chips, M&M’s, pretzels, and sprinkles.
- Refrigerate for 1 hour, then break into pieces.
