English Toffee

This is my absolute favorite homemade candy! This recipe belongs to my sis, Glenda.
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1(6oz.)pkg. Chocolate Chips
1Cup finely chopped pecans

Line a 9x13 pan with wax paper, let some hang over edge. Sprinkle bottom of pan with 1/3 cup pecans. Stir sugar and butter in sauce pan over medium high heat, stirring constantly until candy reaches 300 degrees on a candy thermometer. Mixture will begin to brown. Pour over pecans , layer 1/2 chocolate chips over hot mixture smooth thinly over toffee. Add 1/2 remaining nuts, press into chocolate. Remove from pan flip over gently. Layer remaining chocolate and nuts cool for 1hr. or so. Break into pieces and store in covered container. ENJOY
