Chocolate-Almond Buttercrunch Toffee

About 2 pounds (900g)

Be sure to read the recipe completely through before starting so you know all the steps. And keep an eye on the toffee while it’s cooking. The temperature will climb fairly rapidly as it gets close to reaching the right temperature.

2 cups (8 ounces, 225g) toasted almonds or hazelnuts, chopped between ‘fine’ and ‘coarse’

2 tablespoons water

1/2 cup (1 stick, 115g) salted or unsalted butter, cut into pieces

a big pinch of salt

1 cup (200g) granulated sugar

1/4 cup (45g) packed light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

5 ounces (140g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped, or 1 cup chocolate chips

optional: Roasted cocoa nibs and fleur de sel or flaky sea salt

1. Form half the nuts into a rectangle about 8″ x 10″ (20 x 25 cm) on an ungreased baking sheet.

2. In a medium, heavy-duty saucepan fitted with a candy thermometer, heat the water, butter, salt, and white and brown sugars. Cook, stirring gently if necessary, until the thermometer reads 300ºF (150ºC) degrees. Have the vanilla and baking soda handy.

3. Immediately remove from heat and stir in the baking soda and vanilla.

4. Quickly pour the mixture over the nuts on the baking sheet. Using a small offset spatula, or similar utensil, spread the warm mixture over the nuts. (If you want to sprinkle some cocoa nibs or some flaky sea salt over the butter crunch mixture, do it at this point.)

5. Strew the chocolate chips or pieces over the top and let stand 2 minutes, then spread the chocolate in an even layer.

6. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the chocolate and gently press them in with your hands.

7.Cool completely and break into pieces to serve. Store in an airtight container, for up to ten days.

This is a remarkable puzzle. It was found by a gentleman, in an airplane seat pocket, on a flight from Los Angeles to Honolulu keeping him occupied for hours. He enjoyed it so much, he passed it on to some friends. One friend from Illinois worked on this while fishing from his John-boat. Another friend studied it while playing his banjo. Elaine Taylor, a columnist friend, was so intrigued by it she mentioned it in her weekly newspaper column. Another friend judges the job of solving this puzzle so involved; she brews a cup of tea to help her nerves. There will be some names that are really easy to spot. That’s a fact. Some people however, will soon find themselves in a jam; especially since the books names are not necessarily capitalized. Truthfully, from answers we get, we are forced to admit it usually takes a minister to see some of them at the worst. Research has shown that something in our genes is responsible for the difficultly we have in seeing the books in this paragraph. During a recent fund raising event, which featured this puzzle, the Alpha Delta Phi lemonade booth set a new record. The local paper, the Chronicle, surveyed over 200 patrons who reported that this puzzle was one of the most difficulty they had ever seen. As Daniel Humans humbly puts it, “the books are right there in plain view, hidden from sight.” Those able to find all of them will hear great lamentations from those who have to be shown. One revelation that may help is that Timothy and Samuel may occur without their numbers. Also, keeping mind, that punctuation and spaces in the middle are normal. A chipper attitude will help you compete really well against those who claim to know the answers. Remember, there is no need for a mad exodus; there really are 30 books of the Bible lurking some-where in this paragraph waiting to be found.
