Almond Buttercrunch [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Vegan

Ingredients

For the Toffee:

  • 1 cup vegan butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped and slightly toasted

For the Topping:

  • 16 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped and slightly toasted
 

Preparation

For the Toffee:

  1. Lightly grease a baking sheet, or use a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a medium deep saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar, water, and corn syrup. Return to heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
  3. Boil gently over medium heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar until the mixture reaches 300°F on a candy thermometer. If you don’t have a thermometer, test a dollop in ice water; it should immediately harden to a brittleness sufficient that you’ll be able to snap it in two, without any bending or softness.
  4. Remove from heat and mix one cup of chopped almonds.
  5. Pour the mixture, quickly and evenly, over the baking sheet. Allow the buttercrunch to cool completely.

For the Topping:

  1. Place half the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high in 30 seconds intervals, until the chocolate melts. Pour over the toffee and spread with an offset spatula in an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining chopped almonds over the melted chocolate. Let cool until the chocolate is firm.
  2. Flip the toffee. Melt the other half of the chocolate and pour over the toffee in an even layer. Let it cool completely.
  3. Then cut the toffee into uneven pieces using a sharp knife.

My name is Azu. I am a Biomedical Engineer who likes to cook and bake. I cook, prepare, test and taste international recipes, and if I really like them I share them on my blog Sweet Cannela. I live in Mexico City, which has an altitude of 2,240 m (7,350 ft) above sea level, so I like to experiment with recipes for baking at high altitudes. Lately, I have been interested in making healthier recipes, using good quality ingredients and reducing the consumption of animal products. And although I don’t call myself a strict vegan, I'm making an attempt one recipe at a time. I invite you to see some of my recipes at Sweet Cannela.

I thought butter was not vegan. It comes from milk.

It's implying earth balance. A palm oil based butter. Although, I don't believe palm oil is vegan either. It's a bummer all these "vegan" recipes are supporting the destruction of the Amazon and the orangutan population.

palm oil? it's a massive killer of forests and animals who lived in the forests. It's one of the most polluting culture ever

Totally. I don't use palm oil and I find it frustrating all these blogs use them and call it vegan. But that's my stance.

i agree with you. When so many orang utans are burnt alive, how can we say 'vegan'?

Earth balance has non palm oil flavors and earth balance isn't the only vegan butter.
