Buy English or other toffees online for Christmas
I love eating Toffee of any sort, although the English toffee is much better and more enjoyable to eat. The disadvantage of eating this is the risk of breaking your own, or your false teeth. But what’s a tooth now and then when it tastes great.
There are various recipes and ways of making toffee. It is a confection and one way to make it is with molasses sugar and butter. You have to bring slowly to the boil and test it until it cracks. To test this you drop a little bit into a cup of cold water if it is hard then it is ready to put into your greased tray. When toffee is cooler mark into squares or desired shapes, then leave to go hard, and store in airtight jars.
Origin of English Toffee
There is much controversy as to the origin of the English toffee whether the English toffee is made in hard form or soft and chewy. In my opinion it is great whether it originated in the US or England. It is also believed to have originated in the late 1800’s.
English toffee is a very sought after confectionery and is often served individually wrapped in England. There are two main kinds the chewy and the creamy one. Once made, they break the toffee into pieces of varying sizes. When stored in a cool place in airtight containers it will keep for several weeks.
The English toffee is very similar to Almond Roca which is cut into small pieces before cooling. These are dipped in chocolate or nuts.
Home made Toffee Apples
Toffee Apples are a great favorite with the children. This is where the toffee is made in the normal way a color may be added then the apple is skewered on a stick. The apple is then dipped into the toffee, covering the apple. When set, the kids will make short work of them.
People still love it the world over and that’s the most important. Some add almonds or peanuts, while others sprinkle chocolate on top. Personally I love the Peanut brittle although again watch your teeth with this one.
