  • 2 ½ cups ghirardelli dark chocolate chips (melted)

  • 1 ½ cups dried cranberries


  1. In a heavy pot, combine butter, sugar, and water
  2. Bring to a boil and cook to hard stage (300 degrees F) stirring constantly
  3. Pour onto lined ½ sheet tray and spread evenly all over
  4. Melt chocolate slowly over hot water bath & pour slowly over toffee
  5. Spread out evenly over toffee
  6. Sprinkle with toasted almonds & dried cranberries & press into chocolate 
  7. Allow to chill and set, and break into small pieces
