Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 25 minutes
Servings 25 pieces


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles optional
  • 1/2 cup nuts optional


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the mixture turns a caramel brown color, about 10 minutes or until it reaches 285 degrees F via a candy thermometer.
  2. As soon as the mixture is ready, pour it onto the center of a baking sheet fitted with a silicone mat. Evenly sprinkle on the chocolate chips. After a couple minutes spread the chocolate over the toffee in a nice, smooth layer. Toss on any extras.
  3. Let sit for about two hours or until completely cooled. If after two hours the mixture isn't hardened pop it in the freezer for a bit.
  4. Break into pieces when solid. Store in the refrigerator in an air tight container for up to two weeks.
