Bonfire toffee is a traditional Halloween sweet treat across the UK, but also on Guy Fawkes Night (November 5th). The darker, spooky-looking toffee is made from black treacle, butter, and sugar. If you’re making it from scratch, prepare to get busy with a hammer or something heavy because you’ll need it in order to dismember a sheet’s worth of toffee and break it up into bite-size chunks!


  • 2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cups dark molasses
  • 1/2 cups golden syrup
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 5 tablespoon melted butter


  • Put all ingredients into a heavy-based saucepan.
  • Heat slowly, stirring until butter melts, sugar dissolves, then increase the heat to bring the mix to a boil.
  • If using a sugar thermometer, boil to 160 degrees or test by dropping a small amount into a glass of cold water. If it is ready, it will be a small blob of toffee. It should also be slightly stretchy but breaks with pressure.
  • Pour into a butter-sugar tin and leave to set. To break even pieces, mark toffee when it is partially set. Break into pieces when cool.
