English Toffee
November 29, 2012

I gave it one star so it's easy to find help when people have problems making it. It's not greasy! If you are saying your toffee is "greasy" that means it SEPARATED! I have read that when it does that, you can add 1 TABLESPOON of HOT water at a time (no more than 5 of them) until the mixture comes back together. DO NOT make toffee when it is raining or snowing. You will not get crunchy candy. You will get chewy candy that sticks to your teeth. Use BUTTER (not margarine, crisco, etc.). Don't cook it too fast. Goes from done to burnt in a few seconds (as fast as it takes to count 4 mississippis!). Hope that helps. Also, use a deep pot. If you don't, the mix will bubble up and over the pot while cooking. Candy is very tricky, and can still separate for reasons nobody knows.
