stop English Toffee from Sticking to your teeth (Read 33556 times)

I have been making english toffee for years and the comments i always get is that this is the best toffee people have tasted and it does not stick to your teeth.  However, recently I had a few people say that it sticks to their teeth.  Ouch...I cannot have this with my candy business.  Can any experianced candy cook tell me what I can do to prevent this.  I have heard that if you add a couple tbsp of white corn syrup this can prevent this.  Help...

Well, I'm sure your more of an expert than me  - but I always thought if it gets too sticky it's because it's not being heated to the right temperature.

I also heard it from a friend, that white corn syrup will reduce it.

This may be a stupid question, but shouldn't English toffee stick to your teeth?

I'm from England and I would expect that a good toffee would do!

"add a couple tbsp of white corn syrup" does work for me.

You could try cooking it longer or at higher temparture. I would also try the syrup idea to see if that works better.

I always found that fresh toffee/caramel would be less likely to stick to my teeth than toffees that have been lying around for a couple days. Maybe try the corn syrup thing and keep em in an airtight tupperware.
