How to Make Chocolate Almond Toffee in 30 Minutes (Yes, You Can)!

Chocolate almond toffee is perfect for the holidays, as a sweet gift – or just because! And it's ready in 30 minutes!

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, grated
  • 1/2 cup chopped whole almonds

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Combine first three ingredients in a small, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring just until combined.
  2. Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer registers 325 degrees F or until syrup begins to caramelize.
  3. Stir in vanilla and salt.
  4. Working carefully and quickly, pour sugar mixture onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread the mixture to free-form shape. Let it stand 3-5 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle chocolate over warm toffee. Spread melted chocolate in a thin, even layer over toffee.
  6. Immediately sprinkle with chopped almonds. Allow to harden. Break into pieces.
