Is it possible to make toffee bits in the microwave?
Hi Grace! We wouldn’t recommend trying this recipe in the microwave because you aren’t able to watch as closely as you can on the stove and you need to bring it up to a fairly high heat, which could be less safe in a microwave.
I don’t own a silpat, can I use parchment paper or foil? Thanks!!
Darien Gee says
Yes, though parchment may be better than foil to reduce the chances that the toffee will stick.
