    QUESTION: What's the difference between caramel and toffee?

    ANSWER: Caramel is a fairly chewy candy that is soft at room temperature; toffee is harder and somewhat brittle.

    Toffee, while similar to caramels, contains lower levels of dairy and fat-based ingredients. It has a firmer texture as a result, and its cook temperature, 300 degrees F, gives the confection more carmelization or flavor than caramels.

    Both caramel and toffee are basically a mixture of boiled sugar and butter made in a way similar to that of hard candy except that more ingredients are added. Milk in a sweetened, condensed, or evaporated form is normally used. Fats, such as butter or vegetable oil, are mixed with cream or milk or some kind of syrup before being added to the batch of candy.
