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.
