Daim bits

Post Soundtrack: Sugar sugar by The Archies

This actually happened by accident. I was intending to make some nice chewy toffee bits when I accidentally let it cook too long, to my sweet surprise they turned out really yummy and crunchy, it reminded me of daim bars so I decided to melt some chocolate and make my own little daim treat and it tasted excellent, and the whole homemade factor makes it so much better.

Toffee

  • 300 ml cream
  • 250 g of sugar
  • 60 g of unsalted butter
  • 100 g golden syrup

1. Mix all the ingredients in a heavy saucepan at medium to high heat

2. Let the goo bubble up for quite a long time till it has created a darker color and smooth surface.

To find out if your caramel toffee goo is done. Drip some of the batter in a glass of ice-cold water. If it forms a a nice round shape it is done.  But because you want it crispy, after dip  have a taste of the tested drop and see how chewy it is to your satisfaction.

3.Spread out evenly on a baking tray with wax paper and let it cool.  Cut up to bits before it cools completely

For the chocolate use a boiling water bath to melt the chocolate and then dip in your toffee bits. This can become real messy, but that’s just the fun of it all. It’s the taste that matters in the end.
