Giant toffee crisp

It’s one of my good friends birthdays and she is obsessed with toffee crisp. So I did some research, if you google giant toffee crisp, there is an excellent video on how to recreate this timeless chocolate classic.

I started by melting the toffee, I melted it in the microwave in bursts of who seconds and then 5, till I got a spreadable consistency.

I realised that it wouldn’t work unless I coated my loaf tin with some chocolate. I had planned to unfold the tin (as its silicone) to remove it.

Well it was a nice surprise for Melly who I work with but what I didn’t anticipate was the toffee separating from the rice crispy section, however once the toffee had softened a bit, both rice and toffee were delicious and greatly appreciated seperately and
