This churro toffee is covered in delicious white chocolate, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, and leaves your mouth watering after just one bite! It's better than the stuff found at Disneyland, AND you can make it at home!
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Add the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt to a 3-quart heavy-bottomed saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat until the butter and sugar have melted together, stirring constantly.
Add a candy thermometer to the pan and continue to cook, stirring constantly. Let the mixture boil until the temperature reads 300°F on the thermometer. This can take 10-15 minutes, but it's best to go low and slow Turn off the heat immediately and pour the hot toffee onto the prepared baking sheet.
Let the toffee cool for 5 minutes before using a large kitchen knife to cut the soft toffee to cut it into squares. Go over the lines a few times to ensure the toffee doesn’t melt back together. Let it finish cooling completely, you can speed this process up by placing the tray in the fridge for 20-30 minutes.
Once the toffee has cooled, break the squares apart.
Melt the white chocolate wafers according to the directions on the package. In a pie pan or square baking dish, mix the cinnamon with the sugar to make the churro topping.
Dip the pieces of toffee in the chocolate one by one, shaking off the excess. You can use tongs for this or clean fingers. Once the excess chocolate has dripped off, place the coated toffee in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Sprinkle more cinnamon sugar over the top until it is well coated. Transfer to a clean piece of parchment.
Let the chocolate set up, about 40 minutes or so. Once all the chocolate has set, the toffee is ready to be served!
