    English Toffee


    (1 servings)

    2 c Sugar

    1 c Butter

    2 tb Vinegar

    1/4 c Safeway gourmet golden syrup

    1/4 c Water


    Combine all ingredients in large saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until all dissolved, then boil without stirring until the mixture is dark golden. Test by spooning a few drops into a cup of cold water. The toffee is done when it hardens at once into a crisp ball. Take off heat and pour into a flat oiled pan to make a layer about 1/2 inch thick. When toffee is tepid, score into squares, and when cool break with a hammer and store in an airtight container. Makes about 1.5 pounds.

    2 1/3 cups granulated sugar

    2 cups LAND O LAKES Butter

    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons water

    2 tablespoons light corn syrup

    1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted

    1 cup (6-ounces) semi-sweet or milk real chocolate chips (We recommend NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Morsels)

    Butter 15 x 10 x 1-inch jelly roll pan. Combine all ingredients except nuts and chocolate chips in heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until butter is melted.

    Reduce heat to medium-low. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until candy thermometer reaches 300°F or small amount of mixture dropped into cold water forms hard brittle strands (25 to 40 minutes). Stir in 1 cup nuts.

    Pour mixture into prepared pan; spread to desired thickness. Sprinkle chocolate chips over hot candy; let stand 5 minutes. Spread melted chocolate evenly over candy. Sprinkle with nuts. Cool completely (at least 3 hours). Break into pieces. Store in airtight container in a cool dry place up to three weeks.

    Makes 5 dozen candies (2 1/4 pounds).

    Tips: Test your thermometer in boiling water. If the water boils at a temperature other than 212°F, adjust the temperature accordingly.

    If your toffee separates during cooking, carefully and slowly add about 1/2 cup hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and stir constantly.

    If you prefer a thinner toffee, use two buttered (15 x 10 x 1-inch) pans or cookie sheets and pour half of toffee mixture on each; spread to desired thickness.

    1 pound butter

    1 pound sugar


    Melt butter. Add sugar and cook until the mixture turns to light brown. It will turn yellow first. Be patient. When it gets to the hard crack stage [300° to 310°], pour into a buttered pan.
