- 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- ½ tsp. Kosher salt
- 1 tsp. Vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips
Step 1: Grease a 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and then line it with parchment paper. Spread the pecans over the parchment paper and then set aside.
Step 2: Transfer the butter, sugar and salt to a quart pot. Mix well, and then bring to boil over medium heat. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves completely. Continue stirring till the mix reaches 290 degrees.
Step 3: Once the mix boils, gently stir in the vanilla extract and then pour the mix over the pecans in the baking dish and allow to sit for a few minutes.
Step 4: Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the butter mix on pecans and then cover with foil. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes until the chocolates become soft.
Step 5: Remove the foul and then use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly over the pecans gently.
Step 6: Place the candy in the refrigerator and let it cool for about 2 hours. Afterward, place the toffee on a solid surface and then slice with a knife. Store the smaller pieces in an airtight container until you’re ready to serve.
