Double Chocolate Toffee
Double Chocolate Toffee is sweet, crunchy toffee sandwiched between two irresistibly creamy layers of chocolate- this homemade candy is perfect for gifting! This content is sponsored by Hershey’s.
I love giving homemade gifts for Christmas now especially more than ever. People are so busy that baking oftentimes gets set aside. So when you give a homemade food gift (especially DOUBLE Chocolate Toffee!!) you’ll always be rewarded with a big smile!
When I was a young girl growing up, there was always an assortment of goodies hanging around at our family Christmas parties. The treat I most often found myself coming back to was the candy dish of HERSHEYS Miniatures. You know the ones I’m talking about- four different kinds of chocolate in one sitting! I couldn’t stop until I had a taste of each kind: HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate bar, HERSHEY’S SPECIAL DARK Dark Chocolate bar, KRACKEL Chocolate bar, and MR. GOODBAR Chocolate bar.
The only thing more irresistible than chocolate is toffee so I thought I would combine them both for a Christmas treat. And because I like to push the limits, I just had to line the pan with full sized Milk Chocolate HERSHEY Bars as well!
I love partnering with Hershey because the taste and quality can be trusted every time throughout generations. The same chocolate bars I remember sampling as a child can now be enjoyed by my own children. Click here to watch a short video about the timelessness of HERSHEY’S Chocolate.
Double Chocolate Toffee Recipe
- 1 cup white sugar1 cup salted butter1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 6 HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bars, 1.55 oz
- 1 bag HERSHEY'S Miniatures Assortment, 12 oz
- Sprinkles, optional
- Line a silicone baking pan (or baking sheet lined with parchment paper) with 6 full size, unwrapped HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate Bars.
- Unwrap HERSHEY'S Miniatures Assortment candies. Set aside.
- Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar.
- Stir constantly for 6-8 minutes until the color is light brown (like a paper bag). If using a candy thermometer the temperature should reach about 298°F. The mixture may look curdled or separated- that's okay. You are looking for a light brown caramel color.
- Remove from heat and slowly add vanilla- being careful to avoid any splatters to your skin. Stir for a few more seconds, and pour over the chocolate bars.
- Immediately place HERSHEY'S Miniatures candies on top, and cover with sprinkles if using.
- Chill for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
