How to Make Toffee!

29th May 2013 Recipes 6

I hope you all had a good bank holiday weekend and a brilliant memorial day.

This homemade toffee recipe is so simple and tastes ludicrously good! Toffee is great on its own or as an addition to ice cream or covered in chocolate to create a Daim bar/Almond Roca bar and is far cheaper than buying it from a store.

What you will need:

  • 450g (2 Cups) Butter
  • 470g (2 and 2/3 Cups) Sugar
  • 80 ml (1/3 Cups) Water
  • 82g (1/4 Cup) Golden syrup – Corn Syrup can be used as an alternative to golden syrup.

And if you want to cover your toffee with chocolate to make a Daim bar/Almond Roca taste you will need 500g of chocolate.
