A True Scoops customer messaged us offering her grandmothers (aka Grammy-O) famous toffee recipe! She often puts shards of this delectable treat into her homemade ice cream so naturally she wanted to share it with us, and with you! I couldn't wait another minute before whipping up a batch and I'm so glad I did.
These toffee chunks are ridiculously good and won't crack your teeth. They manage to stay perfectly crunchy in the ice cream, just don't chop it up too small!
You can customize your toffee any way you want. I went the classic route and added a layer of chocolate on top of the toffee, but you can add chopped nuts, coconut, dried (sweetened) fruit, white chocolate, candies, flaked sea salt, etc.
This makes a big ole batch of toffee so keep any leftovers in the freezer for snacking or for future ice cream.
The process is fairly simple, but needs a watchful eye. And guys, boiling sugar is HOT AF so please do not stick your finger in it to try and taste it or nibble some after it's been poured. You will get burned!
