1 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg yolk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

¼ tsp. salt

3-4 milk chocolate bars (7/8 of an ounce each)

    I tried this recipe but mine look like a brownie, did I not mix it enough? I also heated up the coconut oil as it was hard and to sift the flour I just ran it through a metal mess strainer.

      Dean, I’m so glad you tried out this recipe! We spoke with Brittany and think the problem may be the fact that you completely melted down your coconut oil. Try using your coconut oil in a semi-hard state. Let us know if this tip helps! state

        I tried it with the same results, the coconut oil was room temperature and soft. What type of flour did she use? I would love to see step by step images but I may be wishing for too much. They do taste very good, but just not like hard toffee, more like a peanut butter square.

          Dean, we are working on finding out the exact flour she used!

    This is more like a shortbread because of the flour and egg yolk. I’m not really sure why it’s called a “toffee”. I made it this evening hoping that despite the flour and egg it would somehow become a toffee. I should’ve known better. Sure enough it was cakey, and crumbly, but definitely not crunchy like toffee. It tasted good, but I was hoping for the toffee crunch.
