Since making toffee is usually a pretty precise undertaking, what with needing the sugar mixture to be a certain temperature in order to set up into a crisp candy, I was intrigued when I found this recipe to cook it in a microwave.
Just pop 4 ingredients into the microwave and 10 minutes later you have toffee. Only tricky part is to stir in the vanilla really quickly before pouring onto a pan to set. Any delay and you risk the mixture separating. The toffee will still set, but you have to pour off the liquid that has separated out.
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 cup butter, melted
1 Tbs light corn syrup
2 Tbs water
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1. In a 2 quart glass measuring cup, combine sugar, water, corn syrup and butter. Microwave on high for 10 minutes or until caramel colored. Stir in vanilla.
2. Immediately pour onto a greased 9 x 12 inch jelly roll pan. Sprinkle with chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is soft then spread evenly. Sprinkle with walnuts.
3. Let stand to cool completely then break into pieces.

Here is a short song.
And a sweet song, though sad. I find Rick Warren’s voice totally mesmerizing.
