I have been making this recipe for 15 years but I don't use 1 lb bittersweet chocolate, I use 1 cup chocolate chips & place them on the toffee after I have spread it out & sprinkle the chopped nuts over the chocolate after spreading it across the toffee. Then I break it.
I love this recipe!!!

Would make this again.
Very easy to follow instructions. Great taste. I varied by putting ground nuts in toffee just as I removed it from heat, instead of putting the on top. I will make this again. Thanks Chef Leon. 5 stars

I was making this for a bake trade and
I found this recipe to be difficult. Read carefully...candy thermometer? I sure don't have one of those kicking around the house. The ingredients are expensive and you will be buying alot of them. So my advise to you is go for it if you are a chef or own a candy thermometer, if not, find anouther recipe on this site. It's a great site!

Made it twice. Once dipping the pieces in chocolate.The other time spreading the chocolate on one side only. Great both ways, so may only do the dipping strategy when I really want to impress. It took a long time to dip and the candy started getting kind of soft in the chocolate. When you spread on the top though, I only used 12 oz or 2 cups of chocolate chips. It was plenty to cover. A wonderful treat for the holidays and a perfect hostess gift. 5 stars

This is a great recipe. A variation that is even easier: Pour into a pie tin (or cookie sheet). Then as the toffee cools, break up dark chocolate candy bars and sprinkle them onto top of toffee. Chocolate bars will melt--then use a knife to spread the chocolate. Before chocolate hardens, sprinle with pecans. When candy is completely cooled, break into pieces.You'll have chocolate on only one side, but no one I know has ever complained! :-) 5 stars
