Cinder Toffee

Quite simply one of the nicest sweets to eat, and so easy to make too.

In a matter of seconds the mixture went from this

to this

and all because I'd added a tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda.

I have a couple of tips for you though.

1. You need to have everything to hand and work quickly

2. You need the largest saucepan you have and a large tray with deep sides.

I realised too late that I didn't have the right tray, so mine ended up causing an avalanche.

I have tried a little off the side though and it's really yummy. The saucepan
looks a mess when you've finished, but boiling water soon fixes that.

Once cooled and broken up, you can part or fully coat them in melted chocolate.
