“English Toffee”

1 lb. real butter
2 c. granulated sugar
4 T. water
pecans (don’t measure, enough to cover the bottom of a 9 by 13 cookie sheet that has sides)
about 2 c. milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips (uses half and half)

You need to have a heavy sauce pan. Combine the sugar, butter, and water. Using a wooden spoon and a candy thermometer, stir until the mixture measures 325 and is golden brown. Stir constantly. Remove from the heat and pour over the pecans (you want to have the pecans already in the pan before you start). Let it sit 5 to 10 minutes, then put the chocolate chips on top to melt. Spread evenly. She puts some pecans on top. Let it cool and break into pieces. Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
