Easy Homemade Toffee

Would you believe me if I told you that this toffee recipe is super easy to make and only requires about 6 ingredients? This Easy Homemade Toffee recipe is perfect for sharing with family, friends and coworkers this holiday season! I have tried many, many toffee recipes over the years. But never made my own because I was always under the impression that it would just require way to much to create. Little did I know, it’s actually pretty easy to make, requires minimal ingredients and taste so dang on good. It does however require a little patience while mixing the sugar and butter. I find myself snacking on this toffee during the day pretty often or sneaking a little at night! 

This decadent Christmas candy is crunchy and layered with different flavors. The smooth chocolate on top balances out the crunchy-ness from the buttery toffee and the chopped nuts on top.

Easy Homemade Toffee


  • Use a medium to large, sauce pot because you will need plenty of room for whisking the butter and sugar mix.
  • Melt the butter first then add in sugar over low heat, be sure to whisk the WHOLE time. This is very important to prevent clumps, overflow or burning.
  • Bring your toffee to a steady, but NOT a rolling boil over medium heat, and continue to whisk constantly.
  • Cook the toffee until it’s the color of peanut butter. As soon as the toffee looks like the peanut butter, pull it off the stove add in a little vanilla, mix and pour it onto the baking sheet.
