Short And Sweet. Microwave Toffee.

DSC_0108

Since making toffee is usually a pretty precise undertaking, what with needing the sugar mixture to be a certain temperature in order to set up into a crisp candy, I was intrigued when I found this recipe to cook it in a microwave.

Just pop 4 ingredients into the microwave and 10 minutes later you have toffee. Only tricky part is to stir in the vanilla really quickly before pouring onto a pan to set. Any delay and you risk the mixture separating. The toffee will still set, but you have to pour off the liquid that has separated out.

Here is a short song.

And a sweet song, though sad. I find Rick Warren’s voice totally mesmerizing.
