Bonfire Toffee Recipe

Enjoy this traditional Bonfire Night treat with our quick and easy recipe, ready in under 20 minutes!



  • 125g butter
  • 450g soft brown sugar
  • 60g black treacle
  • 60g golden syrup
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar



Step 1

If your syrup or treacle comes in a can, place the can in a pan of barely simmering water for a few minutes to make it easier to pour and measure. Be careful when removing the can as it will be hot.

Step 2

Add all your ingredients to a medium-sized pan and bring to the boil, stirring continuously to prevent burning. Reduce to a simmer, then cook for 15 – 20 minutes. To check whether it’s ready, drop a little into a cup of cold water. If it goes brittle, you’re good to go.

Step 3

Pour the mixture into a well-greased tin and leave to cool completely. Once it’s cool and hard to the touch, turn it out onto a chopping board and break with a (clean!) hammer or the handle of a big knife.

Step 4

Put your feet up and enjoy your Bonfire Night sweet treat, perfect to accompany fireworks! If you try this recipe, don’t forget to share a photo with us over on our Facebook page, or email us at
