Quick & Easy Chocolate Almond Toffee Recipe Is Ready in 30 Minutes

Chocolate almond toffee is perfect as a sweet snack – just because. And it's ready in 30 minutes. No joke! Who wouldn't love to get a box of this sweet chocolate for Valentine's Day?

The sweet chocolate almond toffee is made with granulated sugar, water, butter, vanilla, a pinch of salt, semisweet chocolate and almonds. The sugar, water and butter are heated together in a saucepot on the stove. After bringing the mixture to a boil, cook until it reaches 325 degrees F on a candy thermometer. The vanilla and salt are then stirred in. The hot (be careful!) sweet liquid toffee is poured onto a baking sheet, then sprinkled chocolate and almonds. After drying, break it into pieces. Delish!

Store the homemade chocolate almond toffee in an airtight container. Be sure to share! It makes a very sweet gift for friends and family or the perfect snack or dessert any time.

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 12


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • dash of salt
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, grated
  • 1/2 cup chopped whole almonds

Here’s how you make it:

  1. Combine the sugar, water and butter in a small, heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring just until combined.
  2. Bring to a boil. Cook, without stirring, until a candy thermometer registers 325 degrees F or until syrup begins to caramelize.
  3. Stir in vanilla and salt.
  4. Working carefully and quickly, pour sugar mixture onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread the mixture to free-form shape. Let it stand 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Sprinkle chocolate over warm toffee. Spread melted chocolate in a thin, even layer over toffee.
  6. Immediately sprinkle with chopped almonds. Allow to harden. Break into pieces.
