½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract

Place a candy thermometer into the saucepan and heat the mixture until it reaches 143C (290F), this can take approx 10 minutes.
3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Pour the toffee into the prpared baking pan and set aside for 10 minutes.
4 Place the milk chocolate bar onto the toffee and wait for five or so minutes for the chocolate to gradually melt. Use an offset spatular to level the chocolate in the pan. Sprinkle the pecans onto the chocolate along with torn apple crisps if you are using and set aside for 2 hours or so until the toffee sets and hardens. Once solid, lift the toffee out of the baking pan using the baking paper and break or chop the toffee into pieces.
Toffee can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for about 2 weeks.
