Chocolate Almond Toffee

Today is a special day because it is national English toffee day. I am so excited because I love English toffee and I especially love making it; as well as eating it. It never last long at our house because everyone else loves eating it as much as I do. It is a good thing that it is easy to make because if it were hard I would not be making it as much especially on how it doesn't last long here. Well I hope you get to enjoy national English toffee day as well. :)
Chocolate Almond Toffee
1 cup butter
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup chopped almonds
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped almonds
Line a 15x10x1 inch baking pan with foil; butter the foil. In a heavy saucepan combine the butter, corn syrup, water, and sugar. Cook over medium heat until sugar dissolves and mixture boils, stirring constantly. Using a candy thermometer, continue cooking to 200*F (soft crack stage) stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in almonds. Pour mixture onto the butter foil lined pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the hot toffee and spread out until smooth. Sprinkle 1/4 chopped almonds on top of the melted chocolate . Refrigerate until chocolate is set. Break into serving sized pieces. Enjoy
