So far "how do you soften butter" and "I need a thermometer that goes to 295 F".

Well it's English Toffee. Sort of. The pan isn't the ten by fifteen so it is going to be thick toffee. And he stated that the measurements were taken as "suggestions". So we will see.

I knew it was candy when you said he needed a thermometer that went that high...

The softened butter? Well, I went a different direction with that one. Mostly cause I can be kind of freaky....:rulaiz:

Screw you clowns man! When the SHTF I'm gonna be sitting here eating homemade Heath bars! What are you gonna be doing? :armata_PDT_37:

Actually it is pretty easy:

Melt 1 pound of butter.

Once butter is melted, mix in the following:

2 cups of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt (I put in some extra because Mrs Inor only buys unsalted butter - 2 or 3 1/4 teaspoons. - I do not remember.)
1 tablespoon of white corn syrup (I put in about 1 1/2 tablespoons because some of the corn syrup sticks to the spoon.)

Mix it on medium heat until it is 295 degrees, then pour into a buttered pan. After it sits for an hour or so, convince your wife to go melt some chocolate chips to spread on the top.

As a side note: I heated it a bit hotter than 295 degrees because at 295 degrees it still looked like the time I made foam insulation from automatic transmission fluid. So I am guessing I heated it to about 325 give or take.
