Okay...I'm new here so please bear with me.....

Has anyone found/created a recipe for sugar-free toffee? I'm a toffee-loving maniac and would love to find a SF version for this holiday season. I see that almost all candy shops sell SF toffee, but I am not having any luck finding a recipe to make my own. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Mary Jane

Mary Jane, sugar free toffee can be made with maltitol, isomalt, polydextrose or inulin. It all boils down to what you can tolerate as they all have potential digestive issues ranging from gas (polyd) to laxation (maltitol/isomalt). Isomalt is ideal for toffee/candymaking because it forms a very stable glass. Maltitol is a close second. Polyd and inulin are a little tricky to work with and are texturally a tiny bit different, but, on the plus side, they will caramelize (brown). Neither isomalt nor maltitol caramelizes so if you use those, you'll need to incorporate a caramel flavoring.
