- 200g vegan butter
- 1 cup coconut sugar
- 3 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- Generous pinch of salt, plus more to decorate
- 240g chocolate, chopped into chunks (mylk or dark – your choice!)
- Sea salt flakes
- 1/2 cup roasted almonds, roughly chopped
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a heavy bottomed pot/saucepan, combine the vegan butter, coconut sugar, water, maple syrup, and salt.
Cook over a medium-high heat, stirring constantly.
Once the mixture is boiling, attach a candy thermometer to the side of the pan. Continue to boil, stirring, until the mixture reaches 142 degrees Celsius. (When the mixture gets to 135 degrees, watch it very carefully so it doesn't burn).
Remove pan from heat, detach the thermometer, and pour the toffee mixture into the lined baking tray.
After a few moments when the toffee has set slightly, sprinkle the chopped chocolate over the hot toffee. Stand to allow the chocolate to melt. Once melted, use a spatula to spread the chocolate over the toffee, then sprinkle with salt flakes and chopped almonds.
Refrigerate until the toffee is cool and firm.
Use the baking paper to lift the toffee from the pan, and break it into chunks.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
