English Toffee – Hiland Dairy

English Toffee

English Toffee is a nationwide favorite that is easily made with only a few ingredients. The difference between regular toffee and English Toffee is one important ingredient – butter!

I make English Toffee throughout the year for special occasions and it’s always a big hit. I simply sprinkle on my favorite toppings to create several variations and my friends and family go crazy for this sweet treat! 

English Toffee


  • 2 cups

    Hiland Dairy Butter  

  • 2 cups


  • 1 tbsp Light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 2 cups Milk chocolate Chips
  • Favorite toppings!


  • Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper with some extra sticking up at the ends.
  • In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter sticks. Add the sugar, corn syrup and salt. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until a candy thermometer reads 295 degrees.
  • Remove from heat and add the baking soda. Stir until the mixture foams up. Quickly pours into the prepared pan.
  • Let stand at room temperature until cool, about an hour.
  • In a microwave, heat the chocolate chips for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until chocolate is melted and smooth.
  • Pour over hardened toffee mixture and spread to evenly coat. In four separate sections, sprinkle your favorite toppings on top of the chocolate.
  • Let chocolate set for one to two hours. Remove the hardened toffee from the pan by using the excess parchment paper at each end and break it into bite-size pieces.
