English Toffee


  • 1 cup butter (do not substitute)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 4 Hershey bars (1oz. size)


Cook butter, sugar, water and vanilla over medium heat, stirring constantly until golden brown. Put 1/3 cup almonds on a buttered 9x9 inch pan. Pour "batter" on top of nuts. Place Hershey bars on top. Spread evenly when chocolate softens. Sprinkle top with remaining 1/3 cup almonds. When completely cool break into pieces.

Hey, there! I noticed this post while looking for the same recipe. I had it but couldn't find it at the time. I FINALLY found my recipe, and it's really, really close to the kind served at Martinsville High School back in the good ol' days! I kind of tweak it a bit by adding more powdered milk til it reaches the desired taste and consistency though. And remember to use only the freshest eggs since they are raw!


Crumb Crust:

2 c. graham cracker crumbs
1/4 c. + 2 T. melted butter
1/4 c. + 2 T. powdered sugar

Mix well. Press 2/3 of the mixture into bottom and sides of 9 x 13 inch pan. Save 1/3 to sprinkle over top.


In mixing bowl cream:

1 c. softened butter
1 3/4 c. granulated sugar.

Cream for 5 minutes or longer until light and fluffy.


2 packets Nestle premelted baking chocolate
2 t. vanilla
2 whole eggs

Beat 3 minutes on medium speed.


2 more eggs
1 c. dry milk (add more to desired consistency)

Beat 2 more minutes. Put in crumb lined pan and sprinkle remaining crumbs on top. Chill for 12 hours or longer. (I personally can never wait that long!)
