Make Honey Toffees
These honey toffees are wonderful because they taste rich and sweet. They also take almost no time at all to make and do not use corn syrup. Unlike corn syrup, honey does not make you crave more sugar; rather, it satisfies you. You can make a very tiny batch if you polish off everything you make. This is an adaptation of a recipe from honey.com.
- one part butter (at least 2 tbsp in a part)
- two parts honey
- two parts whipping cream
- one part brown sugar
- roasted, chopped nuts (optional but lovely)
- big pinch of salt (may sound weird but it really brings out the flavour)
- Melt butter in a saucepan suitable to your quantity of ingredients. (This means - the bigger the amount, the bigger the pan needed.)
- Add in other ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat. (At this stage, it is great for dipping apples in it for making toffee apples.)
- Cook over medium until it is golden brown and shows as 250 - 255ºF (121 - 124ºC).
- Pour onto a silicone mat or a buttered parchment sheet.
- Score when slightly cool and break when fully cooled.
- You could definitely put some dark chocolate on this.
- After pouring out toffee from the pot, put in a little milk and dissolve all toffee sticking to bottom and sides of pot. By doing this, you clean the pot and make caramel sauce in one shot!
- Don't touch the hot toffee, no matter how good this looks - molten hot substances will stick and burn you.
- Always exercise extreme caution when working with molten sugar.
- Don't let young kids in the kitchen when making this.
