Pecan Toffee

1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cup pecans, chopped very fine
1 package semi-sweet chocolate chips

Combine sugar, salt, water and butter or margarine (not light). Cook to light crack, 280 degrees on candy thermometer, stirring continuously. Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans and stir with a spoon. Pour onto a well buttered cookie sheet. (i use the paper the butter was wrapped in). You must work fast, spreading the candy out as thinly as possible. While still hot, sprinkle a good handful of chocolate chips on the hot candy. They will melt almost at once. Spread evenly over candy and sprinkle the remaining chopped pecans over the top. When candy is cold, break into pieces.
