Scrumptious Wednesday: The BEST Homemade Toffee

Your diet doesn't start until January 1st, right? 
Okay good, because my mother's toffee is the best in the world. 
Really. You will love it!

homemade toffee 
 (note: my mom discovered this recipe in an article about Winnifred Jardine in the Deseret News in 2005)
Ingredients:
1 cup whole almonds
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 pound milk chocolate
1/2 pound walnuts (2 generous cups) coarsely ground

Directions:
On foil-lined cookie sheet, arrange almonds in single layer over a 7-by-12-inch area; set aside. 
In heavy saucepan, combine butter, sugar, salt and vanilla. Cook over high heat 5-6 minutes, stirring constantly with a dry wooden spoon.
(until candy cookies to a walnut color brown)
Immediately, without scraping pan, pour candy over almonds, covering all nuts. Set aside and allow candy to cool completely. 
Melt chocolate in small pot over the stove.  Break toffee into large pieces.
 Dip each piece into melted chocolate to drip off, then coat lightly with ground walnuts. 
Place on wax paper to set. 
Makes approximately 25 large pieces. 

I hope this treat satisfies your toffee craving, I have sure had my share the last couple days!
