A Valentine Surprise

Do you ever get fed of sending cards for Valentines day and want to do something different.Well here i have made little bags of toffee for people special to me.Below is the toffee recipe and the step by step of how to do it.

Recipe for the Toffee

1 cup of butter
1lb of brown sugar
1 cup of golden syrup
1 14oz can condensed milk


Combine in sauce pan and bring to boil over medium heat. Boil until ready.You can keep testing when you think its ready by cooling in a cup of cold water, then pour into a buttered 9"x13" pan. Allow time to cool prior to cutting.




When ready for cutting,cube into small squares.

When cut up get some wax paper, ribbon and lots of wooden hearts to decorate.You also need cellophane bags for the toffee sweets.Here i have stamped my bags using white stazon with hearts and lips.
Stamp the waxpaper with hearts etc




Then cut up into squares ready to wrap up the toffees



Here is the finished result. mmmmmmm yummy!!!!

Now they are ready to give to loved ones
