I know we all love our Saved By the Bell hunk Mario Lopez – especially now that we know that he can whip up this decadent Chocolate Coffee Walnut Toffee Dessert. Dimples and Chocolate – what could be better?
Chocolate Coffee-Walnut Toffee
Recipe courtesy of: Mario Lopez
A home-made, personalized take on after dinner chocolate this holiday.
1 cup granulated sugar
1 NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Lungo capsule, brewed (4 fl. oz.)
4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup NESTLÉ Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1/4 cup chopped walnuts or almonds, toasted
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine sugar, coffee and butter in small, heavy-duty saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until combined. Bring to a boil; cook, without stirring, until candy thermometer registers 325° F or until syrup begins to caramelize. Remove from heat; quickly stir in vanilla extract and salt.
Pour mixture quickly onto prepared baking sheet, spreading to desired thickness. Let toffee stand for 3 minutes. Sprinkle morsels evenly over toffee; let stand for 5 minutes or until soft and shiny. Spread chocolate into a thin layer over toffee; sprinkle with nuts. Let stand for 1 hour or until completely cool. Break toffee into pieces.
