♡ 12 DAYS OF SUGAR – DAY 7 ♡
Welcome to Day 7 and say hello to this Churro Toffee.
If you’re a Disneyland fanatic, then you most likely know about or have tasted their churro toffee. It’s kind of a big deal and a favorite of most people I know that love Disneyland. There are numerous copycat recipes all over the web and today I’m adding my recipe to that number.
I hadn’t actually tasted Disneyland’s churro toffee until a couple years ago when we there (right before stupid Covid hit actually). I was dying to see if it lived up to all the hype I’d heard and seen about it. Plus, I LOVE toffee so I was super excited to taste it.
We bought some, I tried it, and honestly and I was a little disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, it was good. Honestly though, I think my homemade toffee is better and I knew I could turn my recipe into churro toffee.
So I did and I’m having no regrets!
Maybe I love this churro toffee so much because it reminds me of these apple pie caramel apples with white chocolate and cinnamon on the outside. Or maybe it’s just because I love homemade toffee so much.
Buttery toffee, white chocolate and cinnamon & sugar is kind of a match made in heaven if you ask me.
This toffee is super simple to make and should turn out perfectly every single time IF you follow these instructions to a T!
Three IMPORTANT instructions for the perfect toffee:
- Use a heavy duty sauce pan (I use an old pressure cooker pan).
- Stir the mixture the ENTIRE time!
- COOK ON HIGH HEAT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING! The first couple times I tried this my butter would all of a sudden start to separate from the sugar. I stirred and stirred but it never came together. I asked my mom what I was doing wrong and she asked if I was cooking it on high heat. I wasn’t and that’s what my problem was.
Follow those three rules you will have yourself an amazing batch of toffee that you may or may not be willing to share.
Just a few simple ingredients:
- White chocolate melting wafers
- Cinnamon & sugar
I like a thicker toffee so I use a 10-inch dish/pie plate. If you want a thinner toffee, use two 9-inch pie plates and divide the melted chocolate evenly among the two pie plates.
At Disneyland, the toffee is completely coated in white chocolate, but I like to spread it just on the top. It’s so much easier than dipping it! If you want the chocolate on both sides, once the toffee completely set, brake it into pieces and dip each piece individually into the melted white chocolate. Place it on a piece of parchment paper and sprinkle generously with cinnamon & sugar.
How do I melt the white chocolate wafers?
I melt the white chocolate in the microwave on 50% power for 1 minute then stir it really well. If it still needs more melting, I do it in 30-second increments, stirring well after each.
Fill a small cellophane bag or a tin with some of this toffee and tie a bow around it and you’ve got a pretty fabulous neighbor gift. Enjoy!Print
