fleur de sel toffee.

typical english treat. brittle. sweet. salty. tasty.

fleur de sel toffee

100g butter
250g granulated sugar
200g sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup glucose syrup
3/4 tsp fleur de sel plus more for sprinkling
1 tsp vanilla extract

  heat all ingredients except vanilla over medium heat, stirring constantly.
let boil until the mixture reaches a temperature of 116-118 degrees celcius. this process will take a while until the desired temperature is reached - for me it took over 20 minutes for the mixture to heat and slowly caramelize.
remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
pour into prepared pan (buttered or lined with baking paper).
when set slightly, sprinkle with more fleur du sel.
let cool, cut into squares.


i used a cast iron pan. it spreads the heat evenly.
