I stumbled upon this recipe for Chocolate Pretzel Beer Toffee by The Beeroness.
I'm telling you now that if you want to make a homemade gift for that beer lovin' guy or gal in your life then this is the recipe.
In fact I don't even like beer but this toffee is incredible, the balance of flavours with the sugar, beer and butter just works.
The toffee is made with just that - beer (amber ale), butter and sugar (I used raw).
Its thick and glossy, then sets hard but not too hard.
The chocolate (70%) is melted with hot beer tipped over it. Mine did seize but I managed to rescue it with more beer!
Then top the chocolate with smashed pretzels.
Set in the fridge then cut into generous sized chunks.
I'm hoping the recipients are happy!
