  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, levelled, but not packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 1/4 heaping tsp flaky sea salt (or 1/4 tsp table salt)
  • 1 1/2 tsp instant espresso powder (decaf espresso works too)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or 6 oz./170 grams semisweet chocolate, chopped)
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts


  1. Line a small baking sheet with non-stick paper.

  2. In a medium heavy sauce pan (with a candy thermometer attached), melt butter, brown and white sugar, molasses, salt, and espresso together over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally with a whisk until the temperature reaches 250°F. Then whisking constantly, until mixture reaches 300°F.

  3. Carefully pour mixture onto baking sheet and spread evenly with a spatula. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over the toffee and let sit for about a minute until softening, then spread chocolate evenly over the candy base. Sprinkle hazelnuts over chocolate.

  4. Place in fridge (or freezer) till toffee is set, about 15-20 minutes.

  5. Break toffee into pieces and store in an airtight container.
