The first time my cousin made this recipe, I think I actually moaned when I took a bite. This is such an amazing treat! Rich and buttery, and perfectly crunchy.
I have altered the original recipe slightly, cutting back the quantity walnuts. I prefer not to have walnuts in every single bite, and I feel like the toffee cuts more evenly with less walnuts. These are mouth-wateringly addictive sweets with a perfect crunch. They don't survive long in my house, or anywhere else I take them!
3/4 C brown sugar
1/2 C butter
3/4 C chopped walnuts
1/2 C chocolate chips
Sprinkle walnuts evenly on the bottom of a 9X9 pan. Over high heat, melt butter and sugar together. Heat until boiling. Lower to medium heat, and boil for 7 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour butter mixture over walnuts and spread evenly. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly on top. Cover with a baking pan to keep the heat in and let the chocolate melt. After several minutes, spread the melted chocolate to cover the butter mixture. Cut into small squares while still hot - just scoring the butter/walnut layer. Chill in the refrigerator until cold and set. Snap into pieces. For best results, store in the refrigerator or a cool dry place.
