Christmas Toffee

This week over at Kelly's Korner is Christmas Cookies...well I've never been big on making Christmas cookies...however, I do make Christmas Toffee every single year.  I have yet to make any this year but I found some pics from a few year back (we were living in our old house) but unfortunately didn't find a pic of the finished product! However I googled it and found a pic of a very similar finished product!  This is my absolute favorite thing at Christmas...oh, SO good!!!!

Here's the recipe:
1 cup sugar
1 stick Parkay
5 Tablespoons cold water
½ tsp. baking soda
4-5 Hershey bars
1 ½ cups pecan halves

Butter a large pan or platter (or use nonstick foil). Cover with pecans halves.

Stir together sugar, parkay, and cold water. Cook on medium high heat . Stir constantly, letting boil until a golden caramel color. This will take a while.

Once the mixture has turned a golden color and thickened significantly, take off heat immediately and add baking soda. This will make the mixture double in size. Quickly pour over pecans and spread to cover. Place Hershey bars over the mixture and allow to melt.

Spread chocolate to cover and allow to cool. Once cooled break into pieces.
