This is delicious soft toffee with the addition of dates and nuts. It's a little different from most sweets.
3 cups (375g) white sugar
1 cup (250ml) evaporated milk
1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
1 cup chopped nuts
- Butter a 20x30cm sheet of aluminium foil and dust generously with icing' sugar.
- In a saucepan over medium-high heat, mix together the sugar and evaporated milk. Stir frequently and bring to softball stage. Stir in dates and nuts; allow mixture to cool.
- Form the toffee into a roll about 1-1/2 inches in diameter and wrap in the prepared foil; refrigerate until firm. Slice thinly with a knife dipped in hot water to serve.
