Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the Granulated Sugar (1 cup), Unsalted Butter (1 cup), Vanilla Extract (1 tsp), and Sea Salt (1/2 tsp). Cook over medium heat, stirring every 1-2 minutes until the mixture is dark golden brown, (the color of peanut butter), 10-15 minutes total. (It may take longer depending on your climate, but don’t turn up the heat).
Once the correct color is achieved, pour the mixture onto the baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (2 cups) over the hot toffee, and let sit for 1-2 minutes.
Once the chocolate has melted, spread it over the toffee and immediately sprinkle with Roasted Almonds (1 cup) and Sea Salt Flakes, if desired.
Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to cool completely, then break up into pieces and serve.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
If your toffee begins to get grainy, remove it from the heat and stir in 1 Tbsp of water until combined. Return to medium heat and stir every 2 minutes until it passes the drip test.
