About this recipe: No Bonfire Night is complete without some treacle toffee! This bonfire toffee is relatively easy, just follow the directions to ensure your toffee isn't ridden with sugar crystals!
Right well this recipe gave me quite a headache last week. I wanted it for our bonfire night party. My first problem was the cream of tartar- when I first added everything kept boiling over so I had to keep reducing the heat. It did evenutally settle but I ended up with it all over my stove. I also followed instructions for allowing the toffee to set but unfortunately the tin was not big enough- the toffee wouldn't set because it was so thick. However after splitting the finished products into different containers, and leaving it in the fridge for 24 hours it was set and it tastes great, I will make it again but I will alter the ingrediant amounts- I ended up giving most of this batch away to my family and friends! I think half the amount would be more than enough. - 10 Nov 2011
Burnt it, need sugar thermometer, use a very big pan, boils over! - 10 Sep 2013
I made half the quantity & it turned put great. I don't have a sugar thermometer, but kept boiling until a drop,of it set in cold water. It tastes great & will definitely make again for Bonfire night next year. - 05 Nov 2014
