Did you grow up eating candy bars like Heath and Skor? I did. They were two of my favorites!!
I recently made a homemade version of chocolate covered toffee. It reminds me of my childhood favorites. Milk chocolate outside. Buttery toffee inside.
Homemade Chocolate Covered Toffee
The best part is that these chocolates only contain real ingredients and are super easy to make!
I made them for a Father’s Day treat. They would also be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I wouldn’t mind having them on hand any time for a sweet treat.
Easy Grain-Free Dessert
I used candy molds to make them into individual chocolates. You could also make a batch in a large pan and break it into pieces to be more like a candy bar. Either way you can’t go wrong.
These chocolates are gluten, grain, nut and egg free. So they are a perfect treat for someone with allergies.
- 3 Tbsp. honey
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown cane sugar, sucanat or coconut sugar
- 1/4 - 1 tsp. salt (to taste)
- 12 oz. chocolate chips
- In a small sauce pan combine the honey, butter, sugar and salt.
- Cook over medium heat until the mixture begins to bubble, stirring frequently.
- Continue to simmer the mixture for about 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat and pour the toffee into a parchment lined 8" baking dish.
- Allow to cool in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
- While the toffee is cooling melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler.
- Fill the bottom of candy molds with chocolate (1/4 - 1/3 full) or pour 1/3 of chocolate into a parchment lined 8" baking dish.
- Allow the chocolate to firm in the fridge.
- When the toffee is cool enough to handle, break or cut it into small pieces (if using molds).
- Place a piece of toffee on top of the chocolate layer in each mold or lay the entire toffee piece on the layer of chocolate in a baking pan.
- Top the toffee with the remaining melted chocolate.
- Allow to cool in the refrigerator until completely firm (at least 30 minutes).
- Remove chocolates from mold or break chocolate into bars/large chunks.
- Store in a closed container in the refrigerator.
- If you are making individual chocolates, there will be leftover toffee. This makes enough toffee for about two batches of chocolates (use 24 oz. chocolate chips to use up all of the toffee).
- The toffee is great on its own.
- If you add extra honey the toffee will be more like chewy caramel for chocolate covered caramels.
