- 230 g unsalted butter
- 200 g granulated sugar
- 60 ml apple cider vinegar
- ½ tsp fine salt
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 170 g milk chocolate bar
- 150 g pecans - roasted, roughly chopped
- apple crisps - optional
Line a 23cm (9-inch) square baking pan with baking paper.
In a heavy-based saucepan set over medium heat, add butter, sugar, apple cider vinegar and salt. On medium heat, stir continuously until the butter has melted and sugar dissolved and bring to the boil. Place a candy thermometer into the saucepan and heat the mixture until it reaches 140°C (290°F); this can take approx 10 minutes.
Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Pour the toffee into the prepared baking pan and set aside for 10 minutes.
Place the milk chocolate bar onto the toffee and wait for five or so minutes for the chocolate to gradually melt. Use an offset spatular to level the chocolate in the pan. Sprinkle the pecans onto the chocolate along with torn apple crisps if you are using them and set aside for 2 hours or so until the toffee sets and hardens. Once solid, lift the toffee out of the baking pan using the baking paper and break or chop the toffee into pieces.
