looking for toffee

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
:chef:Hi everyone,
I am a recent graduate from pastry school. I am expermininting with brownie flavors. Does anyone know where I can buy (wholesale) chunks of heath toffe without the chocolate? I have purchased the minature bars and removed the chocolate before baking but that is really impractical. Can someone please help.
Thanks

Welcome to Chef Talk, LCB. If you're looking for toffee, the Welcome Forum isn't the place to find it. :)

I'm moving your post to a pastry forum where it'll get the response you're hoping for. Good luck!

Mezzaluna

P.S.- The home cook in me just couldn't help but mention that Hershey's sells "bits o' brickle" in the grocery store. I Googled 'toffee bits for baking' and got a bunch of hits, including this from Amazon.com: Hershey's Crisp Butter Toffee Skor Bits: Amazon.com: Grocery. Chef Talk has a click-through to Amazon that helps offset the site's expenses a bit.

It would be easier to just make your own. One recipe is as follows: 2/3 C. butter (must be butter, no margarine) 1/2 C. sugar, 1/3 C. water, 1/2 tsp. salt. Combine all ingredients in a heavy sauce pan and cook over med. heat without stirring to 236 deg., or soft ball stage. Add 2/3 C. of blanched almonds, walnuts or pecans at this time if desired. Continue to cook, stirring constantly until thermometer reaches 290 deg. Remove from heat and stir in 1/4 tsp. baking soda. Pour onto greased baking sheet and spread to 1/4" thinckness. Allow to cool, then break into pieces. To make small pieces for what you need, roll over pieces with a rolling pin. It seems to me I have seen toffee pieces in stores near the chocalate chips, but I don't know if they had chocolate coating or not. Shouldn't matter really anyway, you can never have too much chocolate!

You can buy just the toffee pieces...perhaps just here in Canada...I don't know.

They go by the name Skor pieces.

Yes, here in the US, you can get Skor Toffee Bits from a commercial supplier, or you can buy Heath Toffee Bits in the baking aisle of the grocery store.
