Easy Microwave Toffee

If you are looking for a quick, easy snack to fix, look no further. This is 
a microwave toffee recipe that takes just a few minutes and tastes great!

You'll need:

3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 t. salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine (1 stick)
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 buttered baking sheet OR an Exopat Mat (no additional butter required, 
just lay it on your baking sheet)

Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the chopped pecans in a 9" circle on your Exopat mat or on a buttered baking sheet.

Butter the top edges of a 2 qt. microwave safe casserole and put in the butter, salt, sugar and water. DO NOT STIR.  Put the dish in the microwave on high  for 6 to 8 minutes.  Check it after 7 minutes.  Continue cooking a minute at a time until the mixture just begins to turn tan.  You need to watch it here and remember, DON'T STIR.

 

Pour the mixture over the top of your pecans.

Immediately sprinkle the semi-sweet morsels on top and let them sit for 1 minute.

After 1 minute use a spatula to spread the morsels out.

Sprinkle the remaining pecans over the top and pop the sheet into the refrigerator to cool completely.

When the toffee is cooled, simply break it into bite sized pieces -- it won't stick!

  After I had the toffee off the mat and on a plate it took me just a few seconds with a soapy sponge to clean, rinse and dry my Exopat mat -- I hid the toffee from the guys in my family so I'd have some left for guests.

This toffee can be put into a resealable bag and frozen for up to a month.  It makes a great gift for a new neighbor and it is sure to please your family as well.   Enjoy!
