Oh dear. I’m in trouble with this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. These Chocolate Covered Toffee Break Ups are the work of an evil genius (yes, Dorie, that’s you!).
These taste EXACTLY the same. And here’s another thing…
They are ridiculously easy to make. Danger, Danger Will Robinson! (bonus points for those of you who get this reference!)
Basically you make a toffee with butter, sugar, light corn syrup and a pinch of salt. Then you mix in some lightly toasted nuts and allow it to set. Then you smother it in melted chocolate and sprinkle more nuts on top of that. Then flip the whole lot over and repeat with chocolate and nuts.
Then you wait.
And then you take a bite and immediately package it up to give to unsuspecting neighbours who will also be hooked after one bite. This stuff is addictive. I know I will be making this again soon – perfect for holiday gifts – but that it won’t be able to stay in my house for long – either by choice or because we CAN’T STOP EATING IT. Dorie, you devil!
You can find the recipe for Chocolate Covered Toffee Breakups on p 402 of Baking Chez Moi and this recipe is worth the cost of the entire book alone. It’s THAT good. Trust me on this one. I know my sweets.
(also, mum, if you are reading this – you MUST make this for dad!)
Tuesdays with Dorie participants don’t publish the recipes on our blogs, so you’re encouraged to purchase Baking Chez Moi for yourself which you can do on Amazon (this link should bring you to the Amazon store in your country) or for free worldwide shipping, buy from The Book Depository. Then join us, baking our way through the book!
