Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/4 cups shelled pistachios, divided
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon corn syrup
6 ounces white chocolate, coarsely chopped


Directions

Heat oven to 350°F.


Place pistachios in a single layer in a pan; toast for 3 minutes. Remove from oven, cool and coarsely chop; set aside.


In a heavy saucepan, combine butter, sugars, water and corn syrup.


Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.


Reduce heat to medium, and continue to boil until mixture reaches 300°F (hard crack stage; use candy thermometer); stirring frequently.


Stir in 3/4 cup pistachios; mix well and pour into a jellyroll pan lined with buttered foil. Spread mixture into a large rectangle. Cool completely.


In a microwave-safe container, microwave white chocolate 30 seconds; stir.


Continue microwaving in 10-second intervals, stirring after each, until chocolate is melted and smooth, but not hot.


Using a spatula, spread over toffee, covering it completely.


Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup pistachios and gently pat into chocolate.


Place pan in refrigerator for 5 minutes or until chocolate has set.


Break into pieces and store in an airtight container for up to one week.

This toffee is fantastic and looks beautiful when packaged in cello bags and tired with ribbon. A welcome addition to Christmas baskets.

Thanks for the "fix". I'm going to make a batch of this this weekend and see if it tastes as good as it sounds. If so, into the Christmas baskets it goes. lol, lucas hess
