I should also warn you that this is definitely not the recipe to try when you have young children or pets under foot. Seriously y'all, 300 degree toffee is molten lava ( I have tiny scars to prove it). When it reaches that temp., you need to pour it quickly onto the foil and you really don't want to splash any on yourself or anyone else!
Lastly, spend a couple of dollars on a candy thermometer. Butter and chocolate are too expensive to waste because you thought you knew what "hard-crack" meant. Know this from experience!
K? Here we go...
*Cook to hard crack stage, stirring constantly----
2 sticks butter (not margarine!)
3 Tbs. water
1 Tbs. Karo syrup (light)
Spread 1 C. broken nutmeats (I use pecans) on sheet of foil. Pour mixture over nuts. Spread over top of mixture with a knife: 4 Hershey bars, broken. When cool, break into pieces.
*Hard crack is 300 degrees.
And that's my last recipe for 2011. Probably. Enjoy!
