I remember this style of toffee from my childhood, this is the hard style toffee that you can suck on for hours, not the now common chewy stuff.


Serves: 14
  • 1 cup (220g) caster sugar
  • 10g butter
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 100's and 1000's or crushed nuts, to decorate

Preparation method

Prep: 10 minutes |Cook: 20 minutes
1. Stir sugar, butter, water and vinegar in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Boil, without stirring, about 10-15 minutes or until a spoonful of the mixture crackles when dropped in cold water.
2. Pour into paper baking cases in patty pan holes; sprinkle with 100's and 1000's or crushed nuts. Leave to set.
3. Tip: For a chewier toffee, cook for a shorter time (until toffee forms a soft ball when dropped into cold water).
