🧾Ingredients in this recipe

Ingredients for toffee including white chocolate chips, butter, sugar, cinnamon, and baking soda.
  • baking soda – adds small bubbles into the toffee making it less hard. I prefer the lightness the baking soda adds for my toffee, but you can also make this recipe for toffee without it.
  • butter – do not substitute anything for the butter in this recipe or it will not come out.
  • coconut oil – the coconut oil adds a gloss to the chocolate, and helps melt it more evenly. You can make the recipe without the coconut oil, too, especially because we cover the chocolate with cinnamon sugar so it doesn’t need to be shiny.
  • cinnamon sugar – The perfect ratio of cinnamon to sugar is 1:4. In this recipe, add 1 tablespoon of cinnamon to 1/4 cup of sugar for the perfect amount. You can also double the amount you make adding 2 tablespoons of cinnamon to 1/2 cup of sugar if you want to keep some extra in the pantry.
