yep thats correct, for a fun fair. I understand they can be a little tricky when making them and also storing.

Cheers

My mother used to make them quite often, and as far as I remember they aren't that difficult to make, although it can be easy to burn the toffee and it is of course VERY hot, so keep little kids away. I'm not sure how long they keep - it certainly was not long in our house. :-)

Get a sugar thermometer to take the guesswork out of your toffee.

Or drop a sample of the toffee into cold water, if it sets hard then it is good to go. At least thats what I think we did about 45 years ago when I last made them.

That's what I call guess work. I prefer to boil my sugar to a temperature, 150C for hard crack.
