Although there are variations in what toffee is and various theories about its origin, toffee is generally a candy made by caramelizing sugar and molasses. Other food items such as chocolate, nuts, or raisins can be added to give various types of toffee their various characteristics. The temperature in its preparation can be varied to give it various textures. Anyway it is sweet and has a light brown color. It is believed to have its origin in England around 1820. More specifics as to who began toffee making and how it got started vary among various toffee historians.
