So, cue up the video, assemble your ingredients, and follow along with the Chef to make this delicious dish!
8 oz Butter
8 oz Sugar
2 oz Water
In a Saucepan under medium heat combine Butter, Sugar, Water and Salt. Cook until temperature reaches 300 degrees stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Toffee will be a light caramel color when ready.
Immediately pour into an un-greased 13 X 9 pan.
Chill in refrigerator until hard.
2 oz Dark Chocolate Chips
1 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 Tsp Ancho Chilli Powder
8 oz Glazed Pecans (Crushed)
Bring a quart of water to boil and place metal mixing bowl on top to create a doubler boiler. This will help melt the chocolate without scorching it.
NOTE: The metal bowl will be VERY HOT! Use a hot pad or towel to hold it while you melt the chocolate chips.
Put the chocolate, cayenne, and vegetable oil in the mixing bowl and stir continuously until smooth.
Pour chocolate over the hardened toffee, then sprinkle chopped glazed pecans on top. Push pecans into chocolate and chill until hard.
