"In a car full of hot, bright sunlight, with a dat pack of toffees in the glove compartment"
You can't have a road trip without car snacks!
Toffees (or treacle fudge) are a sweet shop classic candy, popular in England with both soft and hard varieties. They're a must have for long car journeys, cinema trips, or an occasional treat - but have you ever wondered how they're made?
This easy chewy toffee recipe only requires 3 ingredients and can be personalised with any flavourings you like. They're so quick to make that you can spend the time you've saved working on the decoration to make it the perfect gift for your Wizarding World friends! So, of course, I've gone for Lightning Bolts.

Harry Potter Treacle Fudge Recipe Ingredients
(makes 18-24 toffees)
For the easy toffee recipe
100g butter (+ extra for greasing)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
optional toppings to decorate
oil for cutting
Chewy Toffee (Treacle Fudge) Method:
To begin, prepare your tin by lightly greasing with butter and lining with baking paper. (Wizard Tip! Use two strips long enough to line bottom and sides. Place one horizontally, and one vertically)
Place a pan on a medium heat and add in the sugar and butter. Gently stir until the butter has melted and the mixture is well combined. Stick your sugar thermometer in and bring the caramel up to the boil until it reaches the 'Hard Ball' stage (121c or 250F)
Remove the thermometer and pour your double cream in, being careful as the sugar will begin to bubble and spit. Allow the mix to calm down before stirring the toffee. Add in your vanilla and salt and allow the mix to bubble for another 2-3 minutes.
Allow the toffee to cool in the pan for a few minutes and you'll notice it begin to thicken (Wizard Tip! This also helps remove some of the bubbles). Pour the hot toffee into your prepared tin and allow to cool until it is at room temperature. Add any optional toppings on top and then place into the fridge to set for at least 4 hours (or overnight).
Once the toffee is set you can remove the block from your tin and place onto a chopping board. Grease your knife with some oil to prevent it sticking and then cut the toffee into lightning bolts (or cubes for a more traditional look). Enjoy as they are or wrap in wax paper and store them in an air-tight jar for up to a month.
It really is that easy to make your own homemade soft toffee! Why not conjure up a batch for a fellow Potterhead's birthday?
