How to Make English Toffee


  • 1in a large pan with candy thermometer attached to the pan on medium heat melt butter, add sugar and stir to dissolve sugar well, add corn syrup and water, stand back as this will steam up don't burn your hand. I cook this until the candy reaches 290*F, I turn the heat up to about medium high, it all depends on what pan I use.when your candy reaches that 290*F take it off the stove and add vanilla and chopped nuts.
  • 2Pour onto a buttered cookie sheet, after about 5 minutes I sprinkle the chips over the hot candy, then with a spatula spread the chocolate over candy, I then take some very fine walnut meat and sprinkle over the chocolate, this makes it look really good "like Almond Roca" ENJOY
