Thought I would stick w/ the candy Bud Light vibe since Halloween is just around the corner, and the Holidays. This would work for all of these occasions and just because you want some Bud Light Toffee!
Bud Light Toffee:
-1 cup of sugar
-1 stick of butter/margarine
-1/4 cup Bud Light
-1/2-3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
-1/2-3/4 cup finely chopped pecans (flavored kind is yummy too)
*You will need to whip out the trusty candy thermometer. Also have a large cookie sheet out and ready for the hot toffee. Best to prep before hand, because you really have to watch/ constantly stir the mixture so it doesn't burn.
1.) Heat the sugar, margarine/butter and Bud Light to boiling in a 2 quart saucepan, stirring constantly; reduce the heat to medium or a bit lower. Be careful the heat isn't to high (Bud Light tends to make things boil over quicker). Cook, around 15 minutes, still stirring constantly until you hit 300 degree temp on the candy thermometer. You can test a small amount of the mixture in very cold water. If it separates into hard brittle threads, it's ready. Be careful not to burn the mixture. Watch your heat and keep stirring. Another way to build arm muscles
2.) Once you hit 300 degrees, immediately pour the toffee onto an ungreased large cookie sheet. Spread the mixture about 1/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle w/ chocolate chips (white chocolate chips/ butterscotch..maybe a mixture..whatever makes you happy) , and let stand about 1 minute/or until the chips are completely softened. Spread the softened chocolate evenly over the toffee. Sprinkle w/ pecans.
3.) Let stand at room temperature about 1 hour. I also put it in the refrigerator another 10-15 minutes, so the chocolate was completely cool/set. Break into pieces and enjoy. If you have some left, store it in an airtight container. It should last for several days tasting FANTASTIC! :)
HHHMMM... Yummy Bud Light Toffee made another yummy good time in my kitchen. Try it in yours! :)
This makes a small batch. If you want a larger one, I would at least double the ingredients. :)
Bud Light-Toffee was definitely a sure sign of a Yummy Good Time! HERE WE GO!!
