Easy Baked Toffee

1 cup (2 sticks) butter

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

21/2 cups finely chopped walnuts

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter a 9-by-13-inch pan.

Place butter and brown sugar in a heavy, medium saucepan and bring just to a boil over medium heat. Stir in 2 cups of the nuts. Pour into the prepared pan and bake 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with the chocolate chips; when softened, spread evenly over toffee. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup nuts on top.

Let cool completely, then break into pieces. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 1 pound, or 60 pieces.
