With layers of walnuts, crunchy caramel, chocolate, and then more walnuts, English Toffee makes a delicious homemade gift.

Hershey milk chocolate bars
Lightly butter 10x12 cookie sheet (with lip). Spread half the walnuts evenly on top.
Using a heavy-bottom pan, melt butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt over low heat, stirring gently until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Continue cooking and gently stirring over low heat for 9 - 12 minutes, or until a candy thermometer reads 280-300 degrees.
Evenly pour mixture on top of walnuts and quickly spread into a thin layer.
Lay chocolate bars on top and allow to sit for about 30 seconds until slightly melted. Using an offset spatula, carefully spread the chocolate into a thin layer.
Sprinkle the remaining walnuts all over the top and gently press in with a fork.
Allow toffee to set until completely cool, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the chocolate to completely firm up.
Break into pieces and store in an airtight container.
Before you begin, get all the ingredients ready. Toffee isn't difficult, but it does require your full attention once you start cooking.
English Toffee will stay fresh at room temperature for up to 2 weeks when kept sealed tightly. It will stay fresh for up to a month when kept chilled in the refrigerator.
