Brown Sugar Toffee and Nuts Recipe
The brown sugar in the brown sugar toffee formula has a rich caramel flavor. Generosity helps the nuts increase the roasted flavor and crunch. If you like the little chocolates of toffee, check out the chocolate variants at the bottom of the recipe.
What do you need
- 1 1/2 Cups of Nuts (Such as Pecans or Almonds, Bake )
- 1 1/4 Cups Light Brown Sugar (Packed)
- 2 tablespoons Water
- 1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter (Cubic)
- 1 tablespoon Light Corn Syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
How do i do this
- Prepare a baking sheet or 9 x 13 pan, line it with aluminum foil and spray the foil with a non-stick cooking spray.
- Roughly chop the roasted nuts and spread them on an even layer of a pan covered with aluminum foil.
- In a medium saucepan, combine brown sugar, water, butter, corn syrup, and salt, and place the pot on medium heat.
- Stir until the sugar and butter dissolve, then wipe the sides with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming. Plug in your candy thermometer.
- Cook the candies without stirring until the thermometer reads 285 degrees Fahrenheit (140 degrees Celsius).
- Once it reaches 285, immediately remove the pot from the boiler and add vanilla extract and baking soda.
- Stir until the baking soda foams the toffee and turns into a lighter, opaque color.
- Pour the toffee onto the nuts on the pan. Try not to apply too much with a spatula, because the more you work, the stronger the ability to eliminate bubbles, so you can make it light and crisp.
- Let the toffee cool completely at room temperature for at least 1 hour.
- Once cooled and solidified, break it down into small pieces by hand.
- The brown sugar toffee was sealed and stored at room temperature for one week. If you live in a humid environment, it may become soft and sticky after a few days.
If you want to add chocolate to your coffee, prepare 1 cup of chopped chocolate. Once the toffee is poured into the nuts in the pan, let it sit for 1 minute, then sprinkle the top of the hot toffee with crushed chocolate.
Let it sit for a while, the heat of the toffee melts the chocolate, and then use a spatula to carefully spread the chocolate over an even layer over the entire surface. If you want, you can sprinkle the top of the chocolate with more chopped nuts. As mentioned above, let the toffee and chocolate completely cool and harden, and then break them into pieces.
