Chocolate Peanut Toffee
With a handful of simple ingredients -- peanuts, butter, sugar, vanilla, and chocolate -- you can create this crunchy peanut chocolate toffee. It's sweet, salty and delicious.
- 1 cup real butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
- 2 cups + ¼ cup roasted sea salt peanuts
- 1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
Line a 9x13 cake pan with parchment paper; spread 2 cups of peanuts into an even layer.
In a medium-size pan add butter, sugar, and vanilla. Stir over medium heat until the butter has melted. Let come to a simmer.
Simmer for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn. The mixture gradually turns darker and is still a little separated. When the mixture turns the shade of caramel and flows from the spoon in a ribbon, pour over the peanuts.
Use an off-set spatula to spread the mix over the peanuts.
Pour a bag of chocolate chips over the top and let sit for 2-3 minutes so chocolate chips melt.
Using off-set spatula spread melted chocolate over the layer of toffee.
Chop the remaining ¼ cup of peanuts and sprinkle over the top.
Let sit for 2 hours until the pan comes to room temperature and then place in the fridge until ready to enjoy. Which might be immediately! ;)
