English Toffee

English Toffee
1 C. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 package chocolate chips
1/2 C. finely chopped walnuts
1 1/2 C. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla

First, chop nuts and spread half on the bottom of the cookie sheet. Have your chocolate chips measured and ready. Stir and cook the butter, sugar and salt in a sauce pan over medium-high heat until light brown. Stir fast for 5-10 minutes. When it reaches the right color (dark carmel) remove from heat and add vanilla. Pour over the chopped nuts and spread out as best you can with a knife or spatula. Next, pour chips on and spread to melt. Sprinkle the remaining nuts onto melted chocolate. Refrigerate. When cool, take a knife; place the tip into the toffee and break into desired pieces. Store in refrigerator in closed container.

*You can also freeze this candy to eat later!
