I'm making some treacle toffee for tonight but think I've left it too late to cool naturally - will cooling it In the fridge affect the result too much, or just speed the process up nicely?

Leaving any sort of sugar confection in the fridge (as it will out of the fridge also, but to a lesser extent) will soften the sugar after a prolonged period due to the moisture in the air. However, putting it in the fridge for a short period of time will simply speed up the cooling process as you put in your question.

  • As it was it hardened nicely in time for the fireworks, so all was well. I shall have to try some more later and out half in the fridge. Nov 4, 2012 at 8:34
