Looking for a recipe for a dessert that was called "English Toffee". It was served in our school cafeteria in Waukegan, IL. and we also made it in our home economics class. It was very rich, had graham cracker crust and a chocolate filling of some sort, but I can't remember what other ingredients and have lost the recipe for it. Does this ring a bell to anyone?

I've had this for a while, cant remember where I got it other than a candy site. Just made it again and it is fantastic! I also add in chocolate chips when it is poured out on the sheet and setting up well. Just be careful about how long you cook it. Make sure that you stir it continuously, but not too fast either! Good Luck.

Bring to boil in heavy pot (MEDIUM Heat). Boil hard, stirring constantly until toffee threads in cold water (about 20 minutes). Pour onto buttered baking sheet. Cool, turn sheet upside down and break into pieces. Nuts may be added to pan before toffee is poured. (10/29/2006)

English Toffee Recipe

No, the one from the link sounds good but that isn't it. This one had Baker`s chocolate in it I am almost sure, it had a very creamy consistency, I do remember you put in the fridge to set it up. I also don't remember nuts being in it, so really not sure why they called it English Toffee. For the "crunch" I think there was just the crumbled up graham cracker crust mix on the top.

English Toffee Recipe

Is the recipe from a Pillsbury Cook Off? If so, I think this is it. Only thing, this one uses nuts on top. If not, I'll keep looking for you as I have numerous cookbooks to page through :)

ENGLISH TOFFEE BARS

Ingredients :

Preparation :

In a foil-lined 13x9 inch cake pan (grease the foil with butter), arrange the graham crackers. Entire bottom of pan must be covered with graham crackers, you might have to break to make an even fit. In medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar and butter and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, pour over graham crackers. Bake in 400
degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove and immediately sprinkle with chocolate chips and as soon as the chips are soft, spread over the top of the cracker crust. Sprinkle with nuts. Chill at least 30 minutes or until chocolate is set. Break into pieces of all shapes and sizes (like English toffee candy). Store in refrigerator. These freeze nicely. Yield: at least 24 bits and pieces.

These recipes all sound very good but what I am looking for was a dessert, almost had a mousse-like consistency. Sort of truffle tasting if that makes sense, was cut into slices and served cold. (11/01/2006)

HMM, you use a mixture of Imperial measurements and Metric. what is 1/2 lb? is that pound? Could you let us know what that is in Metric? thanks. Beats me why the U.S.A doesn't convert to metric like the rest of the world.

Editor's Note: Yes, that is a half a pound. It would be 226 grams. We've been working on online conversion tables but so far haven't finished them. As for why? Who knows? (03/25/2007)

Mix and place 2/3 in 9x13 inch pan

For the filling:

Beat with mixer and then add

Beat for about 5 minutes. Pour into pan and top with remaining graham crackers. (09/06/2007)

Old English Nut Toffee

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

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.
