• 3 cups (675g) white sugar
  • 30g butter
  • 6 tbsp boiling water
  • 6 tbsp white vinegar
  • sprinkles (100’s and 1000’s)


Set out 24 patty pans.

In a small saucepan, place all of the ingredients and stir over heat until dissolved.

Bring to the boil and boil without stirring for 10-15 minutes or until a spoonful of mixture cracks when you drop it in a glass of cold water.

Pour into patty cases and sprinkle with 100’s and 1000’s.

Leave to set.


  • If you want those toffees softer (stick jaws) you can test them earlier. If they form a soft ball after being dropped in cold water, they are ready.
  • It goes without saying that this recipe is not to be made with children present.. The toffee is extremely hot and really dangerous if splashed on skin.
