Toffee is such a fun treat to have when you get bored of plain dark chocolate. It’s caramelly, nutty, crunchy, and super delicious. It’s also really fun to make! While traditional toffee has dairy, veganizing toffee is no big deal nowadays since there are so many vegan versions of animal products. Just get some dairy-free butter and you’re good to go! Make these vegan toffee recipes to serve at a get-together, to give as a gift, to put on top of a cake, or just to munch on when you’re craving something sweet!
