Ingredients

  • 200 ml cream
  • 140 g Dansukker Light Syrup
  • 4 tbsp Dansukker Glucose Syrup
  • 85 g Dansukker Granulated Sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Optional flavouring

  • 1/2 chilli, finely chopped
  • 60 g peppermint candy sticks, crushed
  • 50 g liquorice, chopped
  • 2 tsp ground cardamom
  • Aluminium foil
  • Greaseproof paper

Combine all the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add your chosen flavouring.

Boil on low heat for about 20 minutes, until the thermometer shows 120 °C. The easiest way is to use a home thermometer or you can do a ball test. Drop a little of the mixture into a glass of cold water. If it makes a round, medium-soft ball, the toffee is ready.

Pour the mixture on to a large greased sheet of aluminium foil. Leave the toffee to cool. Cut into pieces and wrap in greaseproof paper.

Tip
Garnish the chilli toffee with chilli flan for a slightly stronger flavour.
