Hope you are all excited for the holidays to start! I am leaving for my mothers' today, and we will be celebrating Christmas in her cottage in the country. Before I leave, I wanted to share a recipe for some x-mas treats I made the other day - simple and tasty! The original recipe (in Swedish) can be found here, but I went ahead and translated for my non-Swedish readers! Here goes:
Cinnamon Toffee Recipe
100 g (3,5 oz or roughly ½ cup) butter
2 dl (roughly 1 cup) granulated sugar
1 dl (roughly ½ cup) pale treacle
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
4 tbsp all purpose flour
Combine all ingredients in a heavy bottomed saucepan.
Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Boil for about 5 minutes.
Pour the (very hot) toffee onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Allow to cool in the refrigerator, then cut into pieces using a sharp knife.
Store in the refrigerator, wrapped in parchment paper or cellophane.
These are my toffees before I wrapped them in parchment paper to give away. The recipe is supposed to make around 40 pieces, but of course that depends how large you make them. Beware, though - they are very sweet! Small pieces are best.
