Sprinkle 1 1/4 cup nuts over the bottom of a well-greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
Melt the butter in a medium, heavy-duty saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 280 degrees F on a candy thermometer, about 7 minutes.
Pour the hot mixture over the nuts; let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with morsels. Let stand until morsels melt and become shiny and soft, about 5 minutes. Spread evenly.
Refrigerate for about 20 minutes. Break into bite-size pieces.
