Salted Shortbread Toffee

Salted Shortbread Toffee

This beautiful and delicious toffee treat is so easy to make! It uses your favorite store-bought shortbread cookies as a base, so all you need to do is crumble, then top with the hot homemade toffee and chocolate.

You Will Need...

  • Nonstick Cooking Spray
  • 4 sticks (1 pound) salted butter, cut in to 1" pieces
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces shortbread cookies, broken in to bite sized pieces
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I prefer Ghirardelli)
  • 1 Tablespoon fine flake salt (Maldon, Fleur de Sel, Sel Gris)
  • Hardware
  • Half Sheet Baking Pan (13x18x1)
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Wooden Spoon or Silicone spatula
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Small offset spatula or silicone spatula
Just a Tip!

    Jennifer, This sounds scrumptuous! What are the directions for making this recipe, other than the note at the top? Do you mix the butter and the sugar and heat it to a certain temperature on the stove? I haven't made caramel before. I would love to make this recipe soon, so I can try it before Christmas. Please clarify - thank you!
