Recommendations

To get the toffee at home, work out, follow the advice:

  • The most convenient way to form toffee is to use silicone ice cups: the mass will not stick to them, and you can easily remove the finished candy.
  • So that the mass is not exactly stuck, the container or the molds can be greased with a small amount of butter or moistened with cold water.
  • If the mass freezes in a single container, it is better to separate it with a sharp knife, while it is soft, since then it will be problematic.
  • Do not try to increase the heat to speed up the cooking process. It must be weak, otherwise the mixture will burn, or lumps form in it.
  • It is equally important to constantly stir the mass during cooking. And do it actively enough to achieve perfect uniformity.
  • The thicker the mixture became, the faster and more actively it needs to be stirred, otherwise it will just stick to the walls of the pan and remain on them.
