So a few days ago I took the opportunity to make toffee for the first time.
Its a nice experience but while reading a few recipes and following a hybrid of two due to one being spammy on my phone for some odd reason, it seemed to turn out pretty nice. I added choco chips and did a lil swirl design with them. Because there was a layer of unmixed clear layer of butter on top, I thought I had to keep it on the stove longer thus giving the toffee a darker color with a slight burn kinda taste when it cooled. -crais inside-
And instead of using a baking pan like advised, I had used a glass pie pan. Fortunately enough it all fit with room to spare in the pan. after topping it with chocolate, the toffee was left alone to chill on the island, and when cool enough, placed in the fridge over night to keep safe.
Cue the next day and I checked it out to see…that the butter layer decided to stick around and caused a cloudy layer over parts of the toffee. I scrapped as much as I could off it then took the next ten minutes breaking the toffee out of the glass pie pan. ; v ;
I showed my sis, who is a better dessert cook than I, and she said that it wasn’t mixed properly but I still did a pretty decent job on making the toffee in general.
I will give this toffee making another try, but half the recipe, cus we limited and 1 cup of butter is alot atm
