Prep your work space:

  • Place a piece of parchment paper onto a baking/jelly roll sheet.
  • Add 1 cup sugar and 2 tbsp cinnamon to a bowl, mix and set aside.
  • Place a few pieces of parchment paper near the bowl with the cinnamon mixture.


  • Using a large, thick bottomed, saucepan over medium heat add the butter, sugar, and vanilla. Stir until the butter has melted and all of the ingredients are combined.
  • Insert a candy thermometer to the bottom of the mixture. Stir constantly until the thermometer reaches 285°F. The candy will become a golden brown color. This will take about 15 minutes.
  • Once the toffee has reached a golden brown color and is 285°F pour the entire pan into the parchment lined sheet.
  • Let stand for a few minutes to set and cool just a bit.
  • Cut the toffee into squares. Disneyland cuts their toffee 4 inches x 4 inches. Using a plastic knife helps and be sure that you cut through the entire piece of toffee.
  • Allow the toffee to set completely. This will take about 20 minutes at room temperature, or you can place the pan in the fridge.
  • If you notice any excess oil/butter appear on the toffee, just use a paper towel or napkin to blot it off. Place the individual squares on a separate piece of parchment paper.
  • In a small saucepan, over low heat, melt the chocolate wafers until smooth.
  • Hold each piece of toffee by the corner over the pot of chocolate. Use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over one side of the toffee or you can dip the toffee into the chocolate coating all sides. Wipe away excess chocolate.
  • Now hold the toffee over the cinnamon sugar bowl. Sprinkle the sugar mixture over the top of the toffee. It will stick right the the white chocolate.
  • Place onto a piece of parchment paper to cool and set.
  • Once set, you can place them into a pretty package or just get right to eating them.
