Sri Lankan Milk Toffee

Yum

I'm rounding up my Sri Lankan New Year celebration with a sweet treat called Milk Toffee.  This is one of my mother's favorite sweets.  After eating some of the spicier dishes Sri Lankans love to eat, it's nice to finish off with something very sweet to calm those fires in your mouth.

Ingredients:
2 1/2  cups white sugar
1/4 cup water
1 can Borden's Condensed milk (or Milk Maid brand) 
1/3 cup chopped raw cashews
1 tsp vanilla
small pinch of salt

Directions:
In a heavy bottom pan heat sugar and water on medium high heat and bring to a rapid bubble for several minutes.  Stir with a wooden spoon.  Careful not to burn sugar.
Next add the can of condensed milk, vanilla and  pinch of salt.  Continue to stir with a wooden spoon for about 20 minutes.   Once the sugar mixture thickens, becomes darker in color and starts to pull  away from the sides of the pan as you stir you can add the cashews.  My mother also says that you should be able to hold a strand of the sugar mixture from the spoon to the pan and it should not be dripping, then it's done. Another method is to have a bowl of ice water and place a drop of the mixture into the cold water.  It should harden up quickly.  All ways to see if your toffee is done.

Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper and butter it. Pour the toffee mixture into the pan and allow to cool for 20-30 minutes. Once set, cut into squares.  Allow to fully cool and store in an airtight container.   Enjoy.

  1. One of my favourites too. Is it traditionally baked in the oven or have you been your creative self as usual? :) The fact that you made them in the oven is tempting me even more now to try this recipe. Pinning it! Happy Easter dear!
