Awesome Homemade Toffee

1 lb. of butter
cup water
2 cups sugar
1 t. salt
16 oz. milk chocolate chips
candy thermometer (if possible)


Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil over high heat in a 2-quart saucepan (nonstick works best) and stir constantly until temperature on candy thermometer reaches 300 (approx 10-13 minutes). Pour into an ungreased 10x13 baking sheet and spread evenly to coat. Will begin hardening immediately so move quickly. Sprinkle milk chocolate chips evenly over hot toffee and wait 1 minute till they begin to melt. Spread softened chocolate evenly over entire pan (like frosting) and chill for 2 hours. Slam pan once on counter to crack and break apart into about 2 or smaller pieces. Store chilled in a sealed plastic bag or container and let get to room temperature before serving. Makes one 10x13 pan.
