Something New Every Day

A record of doing a new thing every day in 2011

Tried making my own toffee, but was more like caramel (44/365) Sunday February 13, 2011

We were going to go to the pictures yesterday (ended up not going in the end) so I thought I’d be mildly rebellious and make and smuggle in my own sweets.

I had a fancy for some toffee, so had a go using a recipe I found at

I clearly did something not quite right, as the toffee took ages to solidify and didn’t really harden up. You could scoop it up and just about roll it up into a sweet, but it was really caramel rather than toffee - although it tasted absolutely fantastic!

I’ll definitely try making it again as it was really easy, although I’ll try a different recipe next time
