Scottish Multimedia | Frugal Treacle Toffee

Scottish Multimedia | Old Fashioned Scottish Mealie Toffee

Got no toasted oatmeal! Had to improvise! Made do with crushed shredded wheat and sesame seeds!

I made a very quick batch of this toffee, or candy, this afternoon as a way of comparing notes with a frugaleur friend who is in the process of setting up a very exciting new business in sweet making. (There’s no web site yet but I’ll keep you posted on how soon her products will be available. Having recently sampled ‘Roobarb and Custard’ boilings and ‘Hot Cross Fudge’, I am sure all the ‘Wee Sweetie’ products will sell well, especially as her handmade sweets will all be additive free.)

Back to the frugal varieties now, though… with today’s ‘make’. Not quite as exotic as the rosehip fondants or white chocolate whisky truffles but this toffee is certainly frugal, fast and tasty when you can’t afford the time or cash to visit your nearest sweet shop. Continue…

    1. Thanks, Dave - hoping to bring it all under the one roof and get the writing 7 publishing stuff organised - I'm getting zero feedback on that side of things and often wonder if anything is showing up at all. :)

  2. NYK - I made some museli with porridge oats - I threw some into a dry frying pan and toasted over medium heat until brown enough. maybe you could do the same for your oaty needs?

    1. I would have if I could have but I mean I am literally all out of oats - winter stock completely gone until I next stock up - now onto cheap cereal for breakfast... or eggs. LOL
