Hello everyone!

Yesterday I made English toffee, the perfect Christmas treat.

They’re extra pretty if using a silicone mat like the one I have here, but you can just as well make them plain.

English Toffee

  • 1 cup (225 g) unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (200 g) regular sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (85 ml) water

Bring out a silicone mat or a baking tray or pan.

Put all the ingredients into a bowl, place on a medium heat and stir until the butter is melted and the sugar dissolved.

Turn up the heat and continue heating the mixture until the temparature reaches 300 °F (150 °C).

This will take about 20 minutes.

Pour the caramel onto the silicone mat or into a lined baking tray or pan.

Sprinkle with chocolate chips or chopped chocolate, then set aside for 5 minutes.

When 5 minutes have passed, use a palette knife to spred out the now melted chocolate.

If you are making this some time ahead I recommend using tempered chocolate, and the surface will stay nice and shiny for longer.

Leave until completely set.

Break into shards and enjoy…

I hope you are inspired to try making English toffee.

Just remember:

  • use unsalted, real butter
  • when melting the butter and sugar – use medium heat and stir continously
  • when the butter and sugar has melted, turn up the heat to medium/high and stir continously until the temperature has reached 300 °F (150 °C)

You can do it!

Hugs from me to you.
