This is the easiest, best toffee I have ever made. Everyone who tries it wants the recipe.

made this toffee today. looked good initially but after it boiled I didn't stir as recipe said. when it reached 150c the bottom of the pan was burned badly! sorry but its not for me. waste of ingredients - 20 Jun 2013
To make it TRULY Melt-in-your-mouth, add 3 tablespoon corn syrup and 3 tablespoon water to the butter before cooking. The corn syrup will stabilize the sugar and prevent graininess. The addition of water also helps the butter melt to produce a smooth, melt in your mouth toffee instead of the undesirable 'stick-to-your-teeth' feel. I received this toffee trick from a caterer and it truly works. Try it. (I also make just half the recipe: 2 sticks butter, 1.25 cups white sugar, 3 tablespoons each of water & corn syrup. Add 1 tsp. vanilla after mixture is done and off the heat.) - 25 Dec 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
