Toffee

This is the wonderful recipe of Grandma Marjorie Knight. What would a Christmas be without the little foil-wrapped treats. Grandma always did such a masterful job with this candy. Enjoy!

Spread evenly in a buttered 9X13" buttered pan:
1 bag chocolate chips or 2 Hershey almond bars chopped

In a heavy saucepan bring to boil over medium heat:
2 sticks butter (no substitute)
1 c. sugar (granulated)
3 T. water
1 T. light corn syrup

Boil 5-6 minutes over medium high heat - to a temperature of 300* stirring constantly. Pour over chocolate chips completely cover chips but do not stir. Let stand over-night. Place in refrigerator 2-3 hours then break into pieces. Keeps best in refrigerator. I don't leave mine overnight but refrigerate then break into pieces when cold.

Andy whipped these up yesterday and me and the little elves delivered about 15 bags of the stuff (10 or so more to go today!). Yummy! Yummy!
