English Toffee

One of my 7th grade Home Ec recipes -

2 sticks real butter
1 cup sugar
Chocolate chips or melting chocolate discs
Chopped pecans or walnut (optional)

Melt butter over medium fire in a medium to large heavy bottomed skillet.
Add sugar, stirring constantly in small circles, gravitating around the pan until color is a rich golden brown.
Pour into pie plate or baking dish to cool, depending on the thickness you'd like. 1/4 inch is probably good.
Spread melted chocolate over top and add nuts immediately while chocolate is wet if using. 
Chill. When hardened, with a sharp knife, break into pieces. Store in frig.
