Homemade Toffee

DSC_0225DSC_0228

HI dear friends. I hope you’re enjoying the second week of December. Last Monday I got my problem statement for my study program project. I have now two weeks to write the project at home. My project is about the spanish flu in 1918-1919 in the subject of biology and history. Therefore I may be a bit away from Blue Ducklings while I’m writing this project, but when I take a break I will be working on Blue Ducklings.
Have you ever tried to make your own toffee? It is super easy, delicious and you can make them just as YOU want them to be and taste. I like trying to make thing from the scratch and trying different flavors out.

You will need
• 2 dl (200 g) Heavy Cream
• 2½ dl (250 g) Sugar
• 1 dl (145 g) Syrup
• 100 g (1 stick)  Butter
• Taste: 1-2 tsp. Vanilla extract or 2 tbs. Coca or 1-2 tsp. liquorice powder or other flavoring powder.

Melt the butter the butter in a pot. Add the rest of the ingredients to the pot and let it boil for 30-45 min while you stir in it. It is done when it has a temperature on 124°C or 255°F. If you don’t have a thermometer that can go to this high temperature, you can take a glass of COLD water and pour a few drops of the mixture down in the water. If the toffee gets hard and doesn’t dissolve in the water, the toffee is done.
Pour the toffee mixture on a covered sheet or box and let it cool down. Cut out the toffee in a proper mouth size.
ENJOY AND YUMMY.
I pour my mixture out on a sheet which makes my toffee a bit thin, but then I fold the toffee over so it gets double.
Make the toffees as a gift for your beloved or as a hostess gift in these coming up Christmas events.


Jeg skriver lige nu SRP om Den Spanske Syge i Biologi og Historie. Jeg kan derfor godt være at bloggen vil være lidt stille de næste 2 uger, hvor jeg har skriveperiode. Jeg vil dog prøve engang imellem at tage en pause, og så arbejde på Blue Ducklings.

Har du nogensinde prøvede at lave dine egne karameller? Det er super let, lækkert og du kan selv bestemme og eksperimentere med smagen.

Du skal bruge:

  • 100 g Smør
  • 1 dl lys sirup
  • 250 g sukker
  • 200 g Piskefløde
  • 1-2 tsk. vanilje ekstrakt el. pulver eller. 2 spsk. kakao eller. 1-2 tsk. lakridspulver. Du kan også bruge andet smags givende pulver.

Smelt smøret i en gryde. Tilsæt de øvrige ingredienser og lad det koge imens du rør rundt engangimellem. Når massen har en temperatur på 124° er karamellerne færdige. Har du ikke et termometer som kan håndtere så høje varme, kan du også bare tag et glas koldt vand. Dryp et par dråber af karamelmassen ned i vandet. Bliver karamellerne hårde og ikke opløst i vandet, er de færdige. Hæld massen ud på en beklædt plade eller boks og lad dem køle af. Skær/klip stykkerne ud i passende størrelser, og nyd dine hjemmelavede karameller.

Jeg hældte mine karameller ud på en plade, hvilket gjorde dem en smule tynde. Jeg foldede derfor massen, så den var dobbelt.

Lav karamellerne som en gav til dine kære, eller som en værtindegave til julens begivenheder.

  1. Good luck on your paper, girlie, I know you will ace it! As for the toffee, I’ve never made it from scratch before and it’s been so long since I’ve had some; I used to love them when I was a kid! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I’m always in favor of making our favorites from scratch!

    Have a wonderful day and rest of the week!

  2. Ooh wow, this both looks and sounds incredible! I’d love to give confectionary a go from scratch, I’ve often thought of making chocolate truffles… though now this is high on my list too! 🙂
