"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous
1/2 pound of butter 1/4 cup water 1 cup sugar (heaping)
Put in a cast iron fry pan and stir with wooden spoon on med./high heat. Boil until the color of walnuts. Before you start crush some walnuts (about 1/2 cup) and put them on a buttered cookie sheet. When the toffee is the color of walnuts, pour it over this. You can put some chocolate chips over the toffee and melt and spread. Cool and break apart.
