~ Chocolate Toffee ~

1 cup sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1 1/2 cups half-and-half
1 1/2 oz unsweetened chocolate melted
1 1/2 t vanilla
1 pinch salt

Combine the sugar, corn syrup, and 1/2 cup of cream
in a large saucepan set over moderate heat. Stir the
mixture until the sugar dissolves completely. Insert
a candy thermometer, reduce the heat to low, and cook
the syrup, stirring frequently, until the thermometer
registers 238F. Blend in another 1/2 cup of the cream,
which will cause the temperature to drop, and continue
to cook and stir until the thermometer reaches 236F or
until a bit of the hot toffee dropped into a little cold
water forms a soft, pliable ball. Mix in the remaining
1/2 cup cream and the melted chocolate. Cook the toffee,
stirring constantly, lest it scorch. Cook toffee until
the mixture becomes quite thick: A drop of it should firm
up quickly in cold water. (NOTE: Even though the temperature
of the toffee may not exceed 230F, if it firms in cold water
remove the pan from the heat at once.) Quickly mix in the
vanilla and salt, then pour the toffee into a well-buttered
8x8x2 inch pan. Cool the toffee completely, then cut it
into 1-inch squares. Wrap each one in waxed paper
or plastic wrap.


For gift giving, package candy in canning jar. Wrap
canning jar with a festive kitchen towel and tie with
matching ribbon. Add gift tag.
