Treacle Toffee

This is one of my very old family recipes - I made a few trays of this last Saturday for a local school fete - and as usual, it was snapped up pretty quickly!

Treacle Toffee
1 lb Moscovado brown sugar (the dark brown sticky stuff!)
4 oz butter
4 tablespoons treacle
4 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons water

Melt butter in saucepan, then add the other ingredients.
Stir BUT only until the sugar dissolves. Once it dissolves, do not stir again.

Turn heat low and allow to boil (very slow rolling boil, ie not a 'furious' boil) for about half an hour.

Test by dropping a small amount of the toffee into iced water, If you can 'snap' the toffee between your fingers, then it's ready!

Pour into shallow tin which you have greased with a little butter/margarine.

Harden in the fridge and break into bite size pieces.

Real 'jaw-sticking' stuff.

I'd have to hide this from DH since he already broke a tooth on one of my desserts (raspberry seed in a cheesecake! ), but this sounds like the perfect treat to make for myself! Thanks, Ishbel!!!
