This is a truly decadent, rich, sinful snack... but we love it!

it's so easy to make. takes about half an hour. learned this from the king arthur flour's blog where you could learn a lot from every post.

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar (i used 1 cup brown sugar)
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon light corn syrup (forego this!)
2 cups pecan or almonds, crunched and toasted
about 2 2/3 cups chocolate chip

pecans are expensive here so i added some hazelnut which is about half the price of pecan.

toasting the nuts is easy. 170C in the oven for about 10 minutes. you'll see them turn brown. dont wait too long here!

the rest of the steps and photos, visit this link here.

  1. It looks positively yummy. But a question...how did you know when the butterscotch was done? The other blog used a thermometer. I don't have one. How ah?

  2. even though i have a thermometer, i didn't bother.

    we are talking about cooking butter with sugar. as long it caramelizes, it's okay. just a matter of how brown you want it to go.

    just try it. it's so easy, and it's such a great snack!
