You should try it coated in chocolate inside a cheesecake. Yum!

The recipe I used to use came from a 1970s vintage Green Eggs and Ham cook book, have spent the last hr looking for it 'cos my kids would love it too but can't find the flippin thing. Think it was more complicated than Jamanda's science experiment recipe though......

Here's a recipe for Cinder Toffee. Its great by itself, or you can bash it to bits and sprinkle it over Ice Cream:

200g Caster Sugar
4 15ml spoons Golden Syrup
1 15ml spoon bicarbonate of soda

You need a heavy based saucepan-I use the bottom part of a pressure cooker. Grease a 23cm square tin really well. You might want to line it with foil first and grease the foil. Mix together the syrup and sugar. Heat gently until it is simmering, and simmer for 3-4 minutes until you have a thick, bubbling caramel. Remove from the heat and whisk in the bicarb. You will get a really cool chemical reaction and the toffee will 'whoosh' and become foamy. Pour into the tin and leave to set.

If there are any Cadbury fans out there this is basically what's in the middle of a crunchie.


From snopes.com. No, I don't know why, either.

Why do you ask?

Actually, I'm now thinking of a HUGE vanilla/honey/ginger ice cream with bit of cinder toffee in.

OK Done that. It'd easy, isn't it? Thanks, Nick - I think.

Yummy, too: the old chap will be surprised!
