1 cup packed brown sugar

2 cups crushed Hawaiian macadamia nuts
1 Tbsp Hawaiian sea salt
Using a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, melt brown sugar and butter, stirring constantly. Boil until a candy thermometer reaches 300º F.
While the toffee is boiling, prepare a large baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silpat mat. (Do not use waxed paper, it will melt.) Scatter the macadamia nuts across the prepared baking sheet.
Immediately remove from heat and pour in the prepared pan on top of the crused macadamia nuts. Top with chocolate chips and allow chips to begin melting. Spread chocolate evenly over top of toffee with a silicon spatula. Allow to cool for a couple minutes, then sprinkle sea salt evenly over the top. Allow to cool completely to harden – overnight on counter or about 30 minutes in the freezer. Lift hardened toffee off parchment paper and break into candy pieces.
