Sweet Melissa Sundays: The Toffee that Almost Made It

November 15, 2009 — 9 Comments

After a few weeks of being busy, then sick, then busy again, I was excited to jump back into Sweet Melissa Sundays with Butter Toffee Crunch. Unfortunately, I scorched my toffee! The one thing you have to be careful of when making candy, and I did it! In my defense, my really nice candy thermometer from King Arthur Flour seemed to be having a problem; the temperature was stuck at 170 degrees, even as it was burning. I didn’t have the heart to try again in time to post for this week. 🙁 But I will try it again closer to Christmas. Thanks to Kaitlin of Kait’s Plate for choosing this festive recipe; I’ll try not to burn it next time! And if you want to see how the other SMS baker’s fared with their toffee, check out the Sweet Melissa Sundays blogroll!

  1. Im so so sorry your toffee burnt. My thermometer was stuck too and I got so freaked out it may burn I took it off the burner to early.My toffee is soft like caramel, but good. We stuck it in the freezer and it turned out super!

  2. Sorry your toffee didn’t work out. I had a surprisingly easy time with mine but it seems like it was hit or miss with a lot of the bakers. Hope your next try is more successful!

  3. Oh dear! I’ve never heard of a thermometer getting stuck before… It does get awfully close to scorching so I think it was just a matter of luck as to whether this recipe worked or ended up burnt!
