 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 c Unsalted butter
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1/3 c Packed golden brown sugar
  • 1/3 c Water
  • 1 tb Dark unsulfered molasses
  • 2 ts Instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 2 c Coarsely chopped walnuts
  • -- (toasted)
  • 4 1/2 oz Bittersweet chocolate
  • --(imported), finely chopped


Butter small cookie sheet. Melt butter in heavy 2-1/2 quart saucepan
over low heat. Add both sugars, water, molasses, espresso, cinnamon
and salt; stir until sugar dissolves. Attach clip-on candy
thermometer to pan. Increase heat to medium; cook until thermometer
registers 290 degrees F, stirring slowly but constantly and scraping
bottom of pan with wooden spatula, about 20 minutes.

Remove pan from heat. Mix in 1-1/2 cups nuts. Immediately pour
mixture onto prepared sheet; do not scrape pan. Tilt sheet so that
toffee spreads to 1/4-inch thickness. Sprinkle chocolate by generous
tablespoons atop toffee, alternating bittersweet and white
chocolates. Let stand 1 minute. Using back of spoon, swirl
chocolates to spread slightly. Shake sheet to form even chocolate
layer. Using tip of knife, swirl chocolates to create marble
pattern. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup nuts. Refrigerate until
toffee is firm, about 1 hour. Break toffee into pieces. (Can be
made 2 weeks ahead. Chill in airtight container.) Serve cold or at
room temperature.
