Let's Make It
Spray rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray; cover with parchment.
Bring butter, sugar, water, corn syrup and salt to boil in large saucepan on medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil gently, without stirring, 10 to 12 min. or mixture is thickened and reaches 300°F when tested with candy thermometer. (Mixture will be done when 1/2 tsp. of the cooked sugar mixture will form a hard brittle thread when dropped into 1 cup cold water.)
Pour immediately onto prepared baking sheet; spread to 1/4-inch thickness.
Melt chocolate as directed on package; spread over toffee layer. Let stand at room temperature until chocolate is firm. Break into small pieces to serve.
Savor a serving of this crowd-pleasing candy on special occasions.
Stir 1/2 cup chopped toasted PLANTERS Slivered Almonds into toffee mixture before pouring into prepared pan. Continue as directed.
As directed in recipe, avoid stirring the toffee mixture as it cooks. But if you need to stir the toffee mixture to remove the cooked sugar mixture from inside of pan, use a metal spoon to give it a gentle stir. Or, you can use a pastry brush moistened with water to brush the sugar mixture off the inside of the pan.
