I have never made candy before this, and it is something that everyone can do. I helped my mom make it over Christmas break and we gave it out for gifts. People would think we slaved on it for hours, but it did not take that long at all. :)


2 cups Semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 bag)
2 cups Baker's sugar (this is finer than regular sugar)
2 cups butter (4 sticks)
1 cup chopped pecans

First, you melt the butter on the stove in a saucepan. Then, you gradually add the sugar. Continue stirring this mixture until the mixture turns an auburn color (kind of the color of carmel).

Then, pour this mixture on a cookie sheet and spread out. Place the chocolate chips on top of the butter/sugar. Let it sit for 2 minutes. Make sure to put wax paper down on the pan, so it does not stick to the pan. :)

Next, use a rubber spatula and spread out the chocolate. It is will easy to spread because it will be melted from the heat of the sugar/butter.

Then, sprinkle the chopped pecans on top. Put it in the freezer until everything is hardened together. Lastly, break into little pieces. :) 

Now, wrap some up and give it to your best friend, or just a friend. They will be your BEST friend after he/she eats your delicious toffee.
