What is "toffee"?

Toffee is a type of candy that is made by cooking sugar and butter together until it reaches a hard, brittle consistency. The process usually involves heating the ingredients over a low flame and stirring constantly to prevent burning. As the mixture cooks, it thickens and darkens in color, developing a rich, caramelized flavor. Toffee can be flavored with a variety of ingredients, such as nuts, chocolate, or vanilla, and can be coated in chocolate or other toppings. It is a popular candy around the world and is often enjoyed as a sweet treat or given as a gift. Toffee is also used in a variety of desserts, such as pies and cakes, to add a crunchy, sweet element.
