home made toffeeThese are those soft sticky toffees you just can’t seem to get enough of. If you have fillings beware, these little chunks of pure sticky heaven will pull those suckers right out.

I have lost a filling before and it was not a pleasant experience but it did not stop me from chewing on a few more and then a whole lot more after the tooth had been fixed. Silly I know, but who can resist a toffee?

What you need

1 tin condensed milk (400g)
2 cups sugar
85ml melted butter
170ml water
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

The process

Line a baking tray with tin foil and lightly butter.

Heat all of the ingredients together in a pot over a medium heat until all of the sugar has dissolved.

Bring to the boil and test every minute or so until a drop in cold water turns instantly to a ball.

Pour into the lined baking tray, spread evenly and cut into pieces when almost set.
