English Pub Toffee

A tasty snack to munch on while watching your favourite sports team and drinking your favourite beer.

English Pub Toffee

Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp beer (Any style will work – Try an Amber or a Stout for richer flavours)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 6 strips thick cut bacon
  • 1 1/2 cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups pretzels

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. In a small bowl stir together the brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of the beer.
  3. Place a wire rack over a baking sheet, spray with cooking spray. Place the bacon on the rack, brush liberally with sugar mixture, flip over and brush the other side. Bake until dark brown, about 18 minutes. Allow to cool (it will harden as it cools), chop into pieces once cooled.
  4. While the bacon cooks, make the toffee. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  5. Add the butter sugar, salt and the other 2 tablespoons of beer to a pot over high heat. Stir continuously until the butter has melted. Clip a cooking thermometer on the edge, cook until the sugar reaches 300F, stirring occasionally. Pour onto prepared pan. Allow to cool about 2 minutes, sprinkle with chocolate chips. Once the warm toffee has melted the chocolate chips, spread the chocolate evenly with an offset spatula. Sprinkle with bacon and pretzels.
  6. Cool to room temperature, then add to the fridge and chill for 2 hours. Break into pieces before serving.

Beef, Bean, and Beer Chili

Hot chili is a very underrated summer menu item. Bring a big ol’ thermos of this to a picnic or other warm weather cookout, and it makes a great side to those grilled burgers and dogs. Just have some insulated cups around, and maybe some hot sauce, and you’re in business. But no matter what season it is, give this beef, bean, and beer chili a try soon.
