Chocolate Almond Toffee


1 pound butter (no, I did not get this recipe from Paula Deen)

2 cups sugar

3/4 cup slivered almonds, divided

3 to 4 oz dark chocolate bar

1 tsp coarse sea salt


Line a rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

In a heavy saucepan oven medium high heat, bring butter and sugar to a boil and continue to boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Add 1/2 cup almonds and stir for 2 more minutes.

Pour mixture on prepared cookie sheet. Let cool 1 minute.

Break up chocolate and spread on top allowing it to melt.

Top with remaining almonds and sprinkle with a tiny bit of sea salt.
