Toffee Bites

These Toffee Bites are one of the best snacks (or desserts) to dazzle your guests at parties. It’s a sweet and tangy mix of butter, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, kosher salt, semisweet chocolate chips, and toasted chopped pecans. My kids get excited every time I make these toffee bites. So I sometimes let them involve in the preparation. Ready to make good ones of your own?

If you are finding something sweet and crunchy, and fun to treat your kids, these toffee bites are the way to go. Enjoy!


  • 1 1/4 c. (2 1/2 sticks) butter

  • 1 1/2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1/2 c. toasted chopped pecans

  • 1 1/4 c. granulated sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • Pinch kosher salt

  • Flaky sea salt, for garnish


  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add sugar then let dissolve. Bring to a boil, then cook, whisking constantly to combine butter and sugar, until mixture turns a soft caramel color and is thick, about 4 minutes. (A candy thermometer should read 290°.)
  • Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla and a pinch of salt. Immediately, pour toffee mixture into silicone ice tray, about 1 teaspoonful in each cube, and immediately top each square with about 10 chocolate chips.
  • Let sit 2 minutes so chocolate begins to melt, then spread chocolate all over with back of a spoon to create a layer on top of toffee.
  • Sprinkle all over with pecans and flaky sea salt.
  • Place in refrigerator until set, about 30 minutes, and twist ice trays to pop bites out. Serve or place in small bags for gifts.
