Happy English Toffee Day: Salty & Sweet Chocolate Butter Toffee
By lizzyd111 on January 12, 2011
January 8th was National English Toffee Toffee Day. Our culinary whiz Chris Garboski came up with this Salty & Sweet Chocolate Butter Toffee to celebrate, and shows you how easy it is in a video (from the Nestle Kitchens blog).
To me, there’s no better way to honor National English Toffee Day than with this recipe for Salty & Sweet Chocolate Butter Toffee. This recipe is based on our Easy Toffee Candy that Nestlé Kitchens created close to 15 years ago. I will go on the record and say this new toffee candy is my favorite SWEET Nestlé recipe to date.
So, how can I improve on it? I wanted to simplify the process (I eliminated the need for an oven). As well, I wanted the toffee center to be more firm to the bite (so I am using butter and granulated sugar in place of sweetened condensed milk and brown sugar). I also wanted to incorporate toasted almonds since almonds and toffee are a match made in heaven. Why the saltine crackers? It adds a touch saltiness, but mostly it’s about that extra layer of texture.
