BONFIRE NIGHT TREACLE TOFFEE
Bonfire Night Treacle Toffee
- 1 lb Demerara Sugar
- 1/4 pt water
- 1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
- 3 oz Butter
- 4 oz Black Treacle (Lyle's Black Treacle is best and isn't quite the same as Molasses, but you can use Molasses as a substitute)
- 4 oz Golden Syrup (again, Lyles is best, but I suppose any corn syrup would do)
- 1 tsp Vinegar
Lightly oil a 7" square shallow tin.
Put the sugar and water in a large pan (or it may boil over). Heat on a low heat until dissolved.
Add the rest of the ingredients and bring the mxture to the boil.After approximately 10-15 minutes, check the toffee by dropping some from a wooden spoon into a saucer of cold water. If the mixture sets then the toffee is done. Pour into the oiled tin.
Mark into squares when cooler (approx 10 min) with an oiled knife. When completely cooled, break into pieces and devour!
