♡THE BEST OF 12 DAYS OF SUGAR – DAY 3♡
Family Favorite Toffee.
This is a recipe I posted back in 2016. It’s the best toffee ever and one of the best recipes my mom ever saved from the newspaper!
(Original post . . .)
I’ve mentioned once before how my mom has quite the collection of recipes. Some of my family’s favorite recipes have come from her crazy collection.This Family Favorite Toffee is a recipe from a 1983 newspaper she saved. She still has that newspaper. It’s extremely worn, but she hangs on to it year after year.
My siblings and I always looked forward to my mom making this toffee. It’s so delicious! with only three ingredient (ok five if you count the toppings), this toffee is really simple to make and will turn out every time if you follow these three simple instructions:
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 over 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.
Make sure you follow those three simple steps and you will have yourself an amazing batch of toffee that you may or may not be willing to share.
This is honestly one of the easiest homemade candies you might ever make.
Just a few simple ingredients:
- Chocolate chips
- Almonds or pecans (optional)
One more thing, the recipe calls for this to be made in two 9-inch pie plates, but if you want a thicker toffee, just make it in one 10-inch pie plate. I make it both ways, but I think I love it even more made in the single plate for a thicker toffee. The pictures are from a batch I made using one 10-inch pie plate.
Fill a small cellophane bag with some of this toffee and tie a bow around it and you’ve got a pretty fabulous neighbor gift. Enjoy!Print
