I'm very sorry, GQ. I've been out of action for several days and I completely forgot about the treacle toffee recipe.
1lb of sugar
teacup of water
1lb tin of treacle
Heat gently until sugar and butter dissolved then boil 2mins - keep stirring
Pour in 1 egg cup of vinegar (I use ordinary malt vinegar).
Boil until it reaches the soft ball stage (ie until a blob of the mixture dropped into cold water makes a soft ball)
Pour into a greased tin and allow to cool and set (I think I used a 7 or 8 inch square tin - haven't made it for 5 or 6 years.)
I was given this recipe by an old lady I met in the treacle aisle in the supermarket about 30 years ago. It's always worked for me.
