2-1/4 c Sugar
1/4 c Water
1/4 c Corn Syrup
2 c Butter
2 c Chocolate Chips
Slivered/ chopped Almonds (optional)
Mix everything BUT the chocolate chips in saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil until soft - hard crack on a candy thermometer or if you don't have a thermometer, boil until it smells burned almost, but it's turned a darker amber color and hardens when dripped in cold water. Pour into a buttered jelly roll pan, spread out, pour chocolate chips over the hot toffee, let melt and spread over the top. Sprinkle the almonds over the top and let harden.
