Homemade English Toffee

Homemade English Toffee

What I Used:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light karo syrup
  • 1 lb butter
  • 12 oz chocolate chips

These pictures were taken while completing a double batch of the above recipe.

(1)  Butter wax paper and set aside.

(2)  Place sugar, karo syrup, and butter in a large saucepan.

(3)  On medium-high heat, combine the ingredients until they reach “hard crack” stage on a candy thermometer (I prefer to test using an ice-water technique).  This will take some time and require constant stirring.  I’ve included pictures of the various stages of the candy making process below.
