Nut toffee

Delicious. This is just a variation of the toffee (or "Dot's Candy") already posted, but here it is in another delicious way.

1/2 lb butter
1 c sugar
2 T water
2 T corn syrup
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
2 c chopped salted mixed nuts

Mix vanilla with nuts. It's odd, but do it.

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add sugar, water, corn syrup, and salt. Boil, stirring constantly, until mixture pulls away from pan and desired shade of brown is reached-- it will pass a pinkish tan into an orangey tan. Darker is better (but, of course, not burnt). Mix in nut/vanilla mixture right before you pour it out. Pour onto buttered marble slab or onto a buttered or parchmented cookie sheet. No point, really, in scoring it: just break it apart into chunks with the nuts when cool.
