This is the best Christmas candy you will ever eat. The bottom layer is like a very thick SKOR bar with it's rich toffee like crunchy goodness.

  • Servings: many pieces
  • Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes


2 cup Black Walnuts
1 lb Butter
2 cup Sugar
¼ Cup Water
2 Tbsp Light Corn Syrup
6 oz Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips


Line 9x13 cookie sheet with 1 1/2 cups of the black walnuts.

Melt butter over low heat. Add sugar and stir until sugar dissolves. Add water and light corn syrup. Cook over low heat to 290°F crackling stage. Stirring occasionally making sure not to burn the bottom. Keep candy thermometer in pot and MAKE SURE you cook to EXACTLY 290°. (be patient, this takes time since you're cooking on low)

Pour filling over walnuts evenly.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips. Use a butter knife to spread the chocolate evenly over filling as it melts. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup black walnuts. Let stand to cool before breaking. Once cool, stick butter knife pointed side down and push through candy and break into different sized pieces. ENJOY!

Helpful Tips:

You can substitute pecans but I would try it this way first. You won't be disappointed. Don't forget the walnuts that are added in. Then you have nice and creamy semi sweet melted chocolate next, then topped with even more walnuts. Pure heaven!
