you're looking for something to do today then I hope you like your
sweets because it's National English Toffee Day! Do you
need a reason to treat yourself to this sweet, crunchy goodness?
Let's get right into celebrating National English Toffee Day!
WHY IS THIS A
There really is no reason for most days to be chosen as a
holiday for food and National English Toffee Day is no different!
This sweet, crunchy goodness has been munched on for years so
there's no wonder why people want to celebrate it. Toffee is
by caramelizing sugar or molasses with butter. When you heat it to
around 300 degrees Fahrenheit it allows it to be pourable as it turns
into the nice brown toffee we know and love. It'll get tough
enough that you can pull it into a shape and it'll stay in that shape
as you cool it in a shallow tray.
When it cools down it's
ready to break into pieces and start munching on it. But
toffee is a very buttery toffee with almonds in it which gives it a
different taste and texture. Health bars actually have an English
toffee core, so I'm sure some of you already know what it tastes like.
You can make this is in chewy or hard versions depending on
temperature you use. I'm certain that once you taste this
caramelized goodness you'll have a new guilty pleasure to add to your
list of things that make you say, "Oh, I'll just have one".
So how are you going to celebrate? Well, you can always take
the easy route and go to a local store and pick up a bag of English
toffee that's ready to munch on right away. If you choose this option
you might as well spice things up a little bit and add it to other
treats you enjoy like ice cream or milk shakes. Share your
English toffee with your friends and family as you all satisfy that
longing for sweetness. Or you can make your own; it's
not that hard at all! Just be sure that you boil it long enough so that
everything caramelizes. Otherwise it won't have the exact texture that
you were looking for.
When you make something like this
yourself you can always get a little creative and give it a topping
like chocolate by melting chocolate chunks on it just before you start
to let it cool. This is a very common addition that really pulls the
flavors together and most women seem a little happier with this topping
;). And if you really want to get creative, why not
with different textures. You could pour your English toffee
top of finished brownies and let it harden. That would make
tasty treat! Or how about pouring it on top of something like
graham crackers to give it an extra crunch? Heck, you could
drizzle it over a couple scoops of ice cream if you like.
one of those holidays where it's hard to stop celebrating!
you find that you can't stop eating your English toffee, then invite
some people over to help you polish it off before you start bouncing
off the walls from a sugar high. Enjoy your day; make it a
