Bonfire Toffee
from the kitchen of Sharmagne Leland-St. John

3 ounces golden syrup
3 ounces black treacle
6 ounces light soft brown sugar
3 ounces butter
14 teaspoon cream of tartar

Line a 6 x 8 inch baking tray with non-stick baking parchment.
Place all the ingredients into a deep, heavy-based saucepan,
over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the butter is melted
and the sugar has dissolved.

When the mixture is smooth and well-combined, increase the heat
and bring the mixture to a fast boil. When the mixture reaches
285° F on a candy thermometer, pour carefully into the lined

When it has cooled completely, break into shards with a toffee
hammer or rolling pin.

Store in an airtight container with individual layers of toffee
separated by baking parchment. Do not expose to humidity; the
toffee will soften and stick together.
