Family Favorite Toffee

  • Prep Time: 2 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6 to 8 minutes
  • Total Time: 28 minute


With only 3 ingredients, this Family Favorite Toffee is so simple to make and absolutely delicious! It’s so good, you may not want to share!


  • 2 sticks butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup sugar

Top with:

  • Chopped almonds or pecans (optional)
  • Grated Hershey bar (large size) or milk chocolate chips (about 1 to 1 1/2 cups)


  1. Butter two 9-inch pie plates (for a thicker toffee use one 10-inch pie plate).
  2. In a heavy duty saucepan, add butter, water and sugar. Cook on HIGH heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil (it will start to become frothy). Continue stirring until mixture turns the light brown (about the color of a paper lunch sack).
  3. Remove from heat immediately and pour into prepared pie plate(s).
  4. Sprinkle with grated Hershey bar or chocolate chips. Let set for a couple of minutes, then spread with an off-set spatula. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if desired.
