2 cups sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup Lyle’s Golden Syrup
3/4 cup butter
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
Have a container of ice water and a greased (buttered) shallow 12” X 24” cookie sheet or baking pan ready.
** Lyle’s Golden Syrup is the “secret” ingredient. You might find it in the syrup aisle at your local grocery store, or, if there’s a World Market near you, they carry it. Lyle’s is probably England’s favorite syrup.
In a large sauce pan, bring the sugar, syrup, butter, 1 cup of the cream, and the salt to a slow boil. Then, very gradually stir in the other cup of cream, a little at a time. It is important not to interrupt the boiling while adding the rest of the cream. Stir constantly. You will notice the mixture darken during the cooking process. Most recipes call for heating to a temperature of 254o F on a candy thermometer. Or, you can test the level of “chewiness” by putting a small amount of the mixture in the ice water. It will harden to a chewy consistency that varies depending on how long you cook it. I used that method and it took about 40 minutes of cooking time to achieve the consistency I was looking for. When the mixture has reached your preferred hardness, remove the pan from the burner and stir in the vanilla. Pour the hot mixture onto the baking pan and level it evenly. Put it in the refrigerator and let it completely cool.
I didn’t fuss with cutting it up into individual pieces and wrapping each piece in wax paper. I turned the pan over on the countertop and the toffee came out in one sheet. While it was still cold, I just broke it up in random pieces, put it in a zip-lock back and popped it back into the fridge.
I love this recipe it is delicous. And it is quite soft and chewy, only problem is it is more caramel then toffee but still very good.

I think you are looking for chewy caramel or english toffee. The base is the same, 1 cup sugar (white or brown depends on taste) and 1/2 or 1 cup butter (depends on density you want) with pinch of salt, and . Heat and bring to boil, reduce heat then simmer to thickness with mixing. Vanilla extract is added at this point if you want flavoring, any flavoring will do at this point as long as the toffee is still mixable, not hard. Add equal amount to butter of condensed milk to mixture from the beginning if you want a milky silky texture. If you don't want the milk flavor use 3 table spoons of water instead. Test your toffee in cold water to check if it forms balls and if they are the softness you need.
