Toffee

By

Definition: Toffee is a candy formed by boiling a sugar syrup to a high temperature, usually soft-crack or hard-crack stage. Toffee usually has a hard, slightly chewy texture and a rich taste that is gained by adding butter to the sugar and water in the sugar syrup. Other common additions to toffee are roasted, chopped nuts and chocolate.
