Directions:
Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with foil, extending foil over edges of pan; set aside.

In a 3-quart saucepan, melt butter; add sugar, water, and corn syrup. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Clip candy thermometer to side of pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thermometer registers 290 degrees F, soft crack stage. (Mixture should boil at a moderate, steady rate over the entire surface.) Reaching 290 degrees F should take 25 to 30 minutes. (Watch carefully after candy mixture reaches 280 degrees F to prevent scorching.) Remove saucepan from heat.

Stir in 1/2 cup of the chopped almonds. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Set aside to cool.

In a heavy small saucepan, melt chocolate over low heat; spread the melted chocolate over toffee. Sprinkle with the remaining almonds. Place in refrigerator for a few minutes to allow chocolate to harden.

Turn candy out of pan. Remove foil. Break into pieces. Store tightly covered up to 2 weeks.
