  • In a large heavy bottomed saucepan, combine the butter, sugar and salt.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring until the butter is melted.
  • Allow to come to a boil. Cook until the mixture becomes a dark amber color and the temperature has reached 285 degrees F (137 degrees C); stir occasionally.
  • While the toffee is cooking, cover a large baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  • As soon as the toffee reaches the proper temperature, pour it out onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle the chocolate over the top, and let it set for a minute or two to soften.
  • Spread the chocolate in a thin even layer once it is melted.
  • Sprinkle the nuts over the chocolate, and press in slightly. Putting a plastic bag over your hand will minimize the mess.
  • Place the toffee in the refrigerator to chill until set.
  • Break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
