English Toffee

I am looking for a recipe for English toffee.

By Denver Bob from CO


Old English Nut Toffee

  • 1 lb. butter
  • 1 lb. sugar
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped almonds (leave skins on)

Combine all ingredients in a 3 qt heavy saucepan. Heat slowly to boiling point and boil gently until mixture reaches 305 degrees F (hard crack stage) or until it is a golden brown color. Stir constantly while candy is cooking. When required temp is reached, pour out on a well oiled marble slab or large baking sheet. Spread flat with an oiled knife. Let stand several min, loosen bottom and mark into squares. Then, if desired, candy may be covered with a thin layer of melted dipping chocolate. Then, sprinkle with additional nuts. When cool, carefully break into pieces. keep in a tightly covered container. The flavor improves if candy is allowed to mellow for several days. 80 pieces or 1 5/8 lbs.
This recipe is from an old cookbook called "Modern Encyclopedia of Cooking" 1947 (11/18/2009)
