Source: The Martha Stewart Show


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 4 ounces milk chocolate
  • 1 (9-ounce) can smoked almonds


  1. Line two rimmed baking sheets with a nonstick baking mat. Spray baking mat and baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

  2. Melt butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add sugar, corn syrup, salt, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon water; stir to combine. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture becomes amber in color, 3 to 4 minutes. Pour onto one of the prepared baking sheets and let set.

  3. Meanwhile, chop half of the almonds; set aside. Melt chocolate in a large, heat-proof bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water. Remove from heat.

  4. Remove toffee from baking sheet and chop. Add to bowl with melted chocolate along with chopped almonds; stir to combine. Evenly spread mixture onto second prepared baking sheet. Chop remaining almonds and any bits of salt remaining in can; sprinkle over brittle. Transfer to refrigerator and chill until set, about 1 hour and up to overnight.

    Click under Monday's banner and then look for the recipe title. I found the video there. If you don't, after dividing the dough into logs and cutting the log into 8 pieces, all 8 were dropped and stirred in the butterscotch. Then all 8 were scooped out with a large strainer

    Where is the video? The show was interrupted (again!) by weather updates. I really want to see this recipe made. We don't have FLN and cannot watch it at another time. Please put the video up. Thank you.
