  • Grease a rimmed 8x12-inch baking pan and line bottom and sides with parchment paper, making sure the parchment sides reach at least 2 inches above the sides of the baking sheet. Grease parchment with butter.
  • Combine sugar, golden syrup, water, and vanilla extract in a deep, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil, but do not stir. Heat to 310 degrees F (155 degrees C) or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms hard, brittle threads, about 10 minutes. Brush the sides of the pan with a clean pastry brush dipped in water if any sugar crystals form on the sides of the pan.
  • Remove from heat and carefully add baking soda; stir quickly until foaming subsides and mixture turns golden. Pour into the prepared baking pan immediately. Cool until set, about 15 minutes. Break into bite-size chunks to serve.

  • Line a 9"x9" (23cmx23cm) baking dish with parchment paper and grease thoroughly.
  • Set aside a metal whisk and one Tablespoon of baking soda.
  • In a large saucepan (bigger the better - as this will more than triple in size) over medium/high heat-combine sugar, corn syrup, and water.
  • Stir to incorporate, then leave to boil. Insert candy thermometer and continue to heat-without stirring-until the mixture reaches 300˚F (150˚C).
  • Remove from heat and ~working quickly~...add the baking soda and quickly whisk into the sugar syrup (whisking for no more than five seconds-to prevent deflating the toffee). The mixture will begin to expand, quickly pour it into the prepared pan and leave to set DO NOT MOVE for one to two hours.
  • Once the toffee has cooled and set, remove from pan and using a blunt object, shatter the toffee into bite size pieces.
  • Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 75-90 seconds. Make sure to stop and stir after every 30 seconds.
  • Dip the toffee pieces in chocolate and place on a lined baking tray. Finish with a sprinkle of sea salt and place in the refrigerator to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
