I remember growing up with a not-so-healthy addiction to chocolate bars and candy in general. My favourites were Mars Bars and Crunchies - the amounts of these I would consume on a weekly basis is a topic that needs no mention. Thank goodness for fast metabolism as a child.
I had never made sponge toffee before, although my little brother has started making it a few times a year because he also shares a love of crunchie bars (although I think he actually prefers it sans chocolate).
The other weekend I asked him to make it with me and we had a fun afternoon full of sponge toffee and kitchen disasters (please do not touch hot sugar- it will give you a nasty burn!).
I wanted to photograph my own take on Crunchie bars (ie. sponge toffee dipped in chocolate) however I realized that I had forgotten to pick up any chocolate from the store and hence I give you only sponge toffee. But don't let my mistakes stop you from trying it on your own!
