Bonfire Toffee

Ingredients

2 cups sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup Lyle’s Golden Syrup

3/4 cup butter

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon salt

Method

In a large sauce pan, bring the sugar, syrup, butter, 1 cup of the cream, and the salt to a slow boil. Then, very gradually stir in the other cup of cream, a little at a time. It is important not to interrupt the boiling while adding the rest of the cream. Stir constantly. You will notice the mixture darken during the cooking process. Most recipes call for heating to a temperature of 254o F on a candy thermometer. Or, you can test the level of “chewiness” by putting a small amount of the mixture in the ice water. It will harden to a chewy consistency that varies depending on how long you cook it. I used that method and it took about 40 minutes of cooking time to achieve the consistency I was looking for. When the mixture has reached your preferred hardness, remove the pan from the burner and stir in the vanilla. Pour the hot mixture onto the baking pan and level it evenly. Put it in the refrigerator and let it completely cool.
