Here is a recipe that I have been working on for almost a year now… My main problem with not posting this recipe earlier is I’ve been lacking a good picture! Every time that I make this toffee I forget to take a picture until it is all gone. I have shared this candy with a lot of family and friends and I get a lot of requests to share the recipe, so I need to share it on my blog also!
Have a Merry Christmas everyone and thank you for visiting. Dan
Caramel Apple Pie Toffee
1 cup white sugar
1 ½ sticks (6 oz) Butter (salted)
1/8 cup water
2 tablespoons corn syrup
¼ cup dried apples (chopped)
¼ cup chopped pecans
½ teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon apple flavoring extract (optional, I use LorAnn oils brand)
Add sugar, corn syrup, butter and water to a heavy 1 quart saucepan on medium low heat.
At a low heat- you don’t really need to stir much until temperature reaches 250 or so.
Continue heating to 300f
While toffee is heating, chop apples and pecans and stir the extracts into the chopped apples.
When sugar mixture hits 300 degrees, stir in the apples and pecans.
Once mixed, pour the entire pan onto parchment paper and spread to about 3/8 of an inch with a spatula.
Scatter 6 oz of white chocolate chips on top of the toffee and wait about 3 or 4 minutes for them to melt. Spread melted chocolate evenly and then top with spice mix.
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons sugar
Let toffee cool until white chocolate hardens then break into serving size pieces.
