These chocolate toffees have a big place in my heart and in my family. Especially once episode, over 20 years ago, when I had done the toffees several days in a row , they were so popular here at home. So this day , I did so 4 x the recipe. Was lots of toffees and my plan was to avoid having to do them in a few days anyway. Added them in boxs and would hide them so the kids did not find them. The thing is that I was a single mom to my three wonderful daughters. It became calm and quiet at home, but it was at eveningtime , so it was not so strange . But when it’s been too quiet for a while , I went and look for the kids. There are all three in a bed with there own jars of chocolate fudge and caramel all over their faces . But they were so happy that it was not possible to get angry at them. Imagine the 3 -year-olds with chocolate all over them , beaming with happiness…. Now they lives abroad and makes them very often as well. 🙂
So these toffees is really a tradition here at home. All, and I mean everyone, has asked for the recipe for these chocolate toffees .
They are absolutely amazing ! One can not believe that they are so incredibly good , when the ingredients are so simple and cheep . And what is so good that most people who have some form of food allergy can eat them.
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
0,5 cup syrup
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa
Everything cooked together into a thick paste. Make caramel sample , ie drip a bit of caramel mixture into a glas of cold water. Is it possible to make a ball of it so the batter is finished. Hitting the buckling shape. Allow to cool . Enjoy !

this post made me laugh! I can imagine their faces! Now I have to try and make these ASAP. In our case I guess the kids will come in and find me with a chocolaty face and complain I ate all their toffees……

Can I ask whether ‘syrup’ if golden syrup or another kind of syrup? I’d love to make these and want to make sure I get the recipe just right. Looking forward to my son sneaking some into his bed one day! Thank you for the lovely story as well, it really made me smile.
Hope your son will love them as well. Let me know what you think of them 🙂
