English Butter Toffee

by Marias Mixing Bowl

This English Butter Toffee is real, honest-to-goodness, made from scratch toffee. It’s the classic candy that you’ve loved your entire life, and you can make it at home. It’s easier than you think!

– Unsalted butter – Corn syrup – Salt – Sugar – Dark chocolate – Chopped pecans – Water


To make toffee, line an 11x17 pan with parchment or foil, and spray with non-stick spray. Combine corn syrup, water, salt, and sugar in a pot, stirring until sugar is wet. Add butter and heat over medium until boiling.



Stop stirring and heat to 290-300 degrees using a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and pour into the prepared pan. After cooling for 10 minutes, wipe off excess butter, melt chocolate, and spread over the toffee. Sprinkle chopped pecans and let it set before breaking it into pieces.
