Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 20 minutes

Total: 25 minutes

Yield: 24 toffees


1 cup coarsely chopped pecans


1 cup unsalted butter

1 cup granulated sugar

½ tsp. Kosher salt

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

1 cup milk chocolate chips

How to Prepare

Step 1:

Grease a 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and then line it with parchment paper. Spread the pecans over the parchment paper and then set aside.

Step 2:

Transfer the butter, sugar and salt to a quart pot. Mix well, and then bring to boil over medium heat. Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves completely. Continue stirring till the mix reaches 290 degrees.

Step 3:

Once the mix boils, gently stir in the vanilla extract and then pour the mix over the pecans in the baking dish and allow to sit for a few minutes.

Step 4:

Sprinkle the chocolate chips over the butter mix on pecans and then cover with foil. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes until the chocolates become soft.

Step 5:

Remove the foul and then use a spatula to spread the chocolate evenly over the pecans gently.

Step 6:

Place the candy in the refrigerator and let it cool for about 2 hours. Afterward, place the toffee on a solid surface and then slice with a knife. Store the smaller pieces in an airtight container until you’re ready to serve.


Ensure that you store the toffee away from heat and moisture to prevent it from getting sticky.

Instead of milk chocolate chips, you can use Hershey’s bars for the top layer of this candy. You’ll get as much deliciousness as you get with the chocolate chips.

You can store these toffees in an airtight jar for up to two weeks.
