Makes One 9-inch Round
The Cook and Kitchen Staff are proud to continue to offer you a sampling of recipes from the Young Family Reunion Recipe Collection, as unofficially published in a small cookbook entitled "Forever Young." Today's recipe is an easy to-prepare-candy that may be utilized year-round.
It's perfect to serve at casual social gatherings or as a stand-alone dessert, or to offer at a bake sale. Break it up into small pieces and it's a perfect topping for a dish of ice cream. Try it out tonight; you've probably got all the ingredients in your refrigerator and pantry! Sprinkle walnuts in the bottom of a 9-inch round cake or pie tin. Combine sugar and butter in a 1½ quart saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until attaining a 290-F degree temperate on a candy thermometer. Make sure to stir your toffee constantly while melting the brown sugar and butter.
Remove the melted toffee from the heat source and cool slightly for about 5 minutes. Pour the mixture over the top of the walnuts in the round pan and spread out in an even layer. Immediately sprinkle the top with the chocolate chips. Let them melt from the heat of the toffee, then gently spread the melted chocolate over the top of the hardening candy.
If desired, sprinkle a few more chopped or ground walnuts on top of the chocolate while it's still soft and warm. Cool at room temperature until hard, at least 2 hours, then break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
