Easy English Toffee

This simple candy recipe is on my list of gifts to give this year!

English Toffee Candy
1 C. granulated sugar
½ lb. Butter or margarine
3 T. water
1 tsp. Vanilla
3 small Hershey bars, chopped
¾ C. chopped pecans (optional)

  1. Place the first four ingredients in a heavy saucepan and cook until brown, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
  2. Pour onto a buttered cookie sheet.
  3. Carefully place the Hershey bars across the hot mass and spread gently as it melts.
  4. Sprinkle pecans over the top.
  5. Let cool.
  6. When cooled break into pieces of the desired size.
