Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 cups plus 1 tablespoon butter
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup milk chocolate flavored chips
1 cup pecans, chopped

Instructions

Grease a 15x10-inch baking pan with butter or butter flavored cooking spray; set aside. In a heavy saucepan melt butter, add sugar, corn syrup and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until candy thermometer reads 295 degrees. Quickly pour into buttered pan. Let cool for one hour. Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler or carefully in microwave 30 seconds at a time checking after each 30 seconds so they don't burn. Spread over the toffee. Sprinkle the pecans on the candy. After the candy cools, break into bite-sized pieces and store in air tight containers.
