- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large pot over medium heat, add butter, water, sugar and kosher salt. Put the thermometer in and stir occasionally until thermometer reaches 300ºF. The mixture should be golden brown.
- Turn the heat off and remove pot from heat. Very slowly add vanilla extract, stirring constantly.
- Pour the toffee mixture onto the baking sheet and tilt it from side to side to spread evenly. Set aside for 10-15 minutes, until cool.
- Meanwhile, put chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 20 seconds. Stir and microwave for another 20 seconds. Repeat this step until chocolate is melted.
- Drizzle chocolate over the toffee and spread evenly with a large spoon or offset spatula.
