  2. 3 dl/ 300 ml/ 1 1/4 cups of oat-cream or any other vegan cream
  3. 2,5 dl / 250 ml / 1 cup of dark muscovado sugar
  4. 1,5 dl/150 ml/ 8 tbsp light syrup
  5. 0,5 g / 0,018 oz saffron (1 bag of saffron powder = 0,5 gram)
  6. juice from 1 satsuma
Instructions
  1. 1. Melt vegan margarine in a pot with a thick base on the stove.
  2. 2. Remove the pan from the heat.

  8. 8. Lower the heat and let the mixture cook gently, it should start to bubble, reduce the heat if necessary.
  9. 9. Stir regularly and pay attention. Once the bubbles become bigger and form much slower, test the mixture as instructed in step 10.
  10. 10. Every now and then test the mixture with the help of a glass with cold water. Add a dollop of the mixture to the glass and if you can shape the mixture and the mixture holds to the shape you created, the toffee is ready - or let cook until the liquid reaches 120 C / 248 F.
  11. 11. Repeat the test until you get a result you can shape or a consistency you are happy with.
  12. 12. Once ready, remove the pot from the heat and immediately pour the mixture into a tray covered with a baking-paper and let cool down.
  13. 13. Once the toffee has hardened and cooled down, cut equally big pieces and wrap them in pieces of baking paper.
  14. 14. Store in a cool, dry and dark place.
Notes
  1. You can also use white/brown or other types of sugar, however you wont get the same rich taste if you use other types of sugars in this recipe.

Thanks for this recipe – these turned out wonderful using coconut cream from chilled, canned milk, maple syrup, and coconut oil subbed for margarine. I especially appreciated the tip for checking it’s ready by dropping it in cold water. I ended up getting the perfect consistency for a delicious batch of vegan turtles.

As a side note – I really enjoy your approach to exhibiting your recipes on this blog, and I look forward to following your future success!
