I do a freaking TON of baking.
Like, my family would weigh a million pounds if we really ate everything I make.
More often than not, I will leave a couple pieces of whatever at home, and then bring the rest to work to share.

My friend at work is always so disappointed. He has a wicked sweet tooth, but allergies have snuck up on him over the years. Wheat and almond. Craziness. There is a laundry list a mile long that he cannot eat...which includes most of the goodies I bring in.

Checked the corn syrup, and it is gluten free!
In fact, this whole recipe is!!

I brought him a container of it. Without even opening it, he was like, "thanks,wife and kids will appreciate it". Hello! Open and check it out!
He was sooooo excited!!

It really is the little things in life!

1 Cup sugar
1 Cup butter
1 Tbsp light corn syrup
¼ Cup water
1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips

1. Lightly grease a baking sheet
2. Bring sugar, butter, corn syrup, and water to a boil
3. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is golden brown and the candy thermometer reads 300 or hard crack
4. Pour mixture onto prepared baking sheet
5. Sprinkle the chocolate chips and let them stand for a minute until they begin to melt
6. Spread melted chips evenly over the top
7. Chill for an hour and break into pieces


Come party with me HERE!


  1. Mmmmm - this looks so delicious! I love that this recipe is so accessible. It looks like something even I could make at home in a pinch. Thanks for sharing this recipe idea :)

  2. Yum!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY!

  3. This looks so easy to make. I love toffees and I can't wait to try this one. How long can it be stored, in case I manage to not eat all of it in one go?

    1. In an airtight container, I would say it could last about a week. (didn't keep it any longer to see!)

  4. I love your Toffee recipe, Jay, it looks delicious! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome post with us at Full Plate Thursday and come back soon!
