Kiri Tofee / Milk Toffee




Introduction: Kiri Tofee / Milk Toffee

About: I'm a mom of 4 and I love to craft! Anything and Everything interests me and i love to create in the process of learning.

This is a popular Sri Lankan sweet. It would be very hard to find even one person who has not had it! The direct translation of Kiri Toffe is Milk Tofee.

This tofee is very tasty and super easy to make. Store bought Kiri Toffee can be kept out for 3 months. I have been unable to test this theory as my kiri toffees never lasted 1 was eaten long before a week!

Step 1: Ingredients


400 g sweet condensed milk

220 g sugar

1 tbs Vanilla essence

1/4 Cup water

2 tbs Butter.

Cadju (optional)

Usually cadju is chopped and added to the mixture. But I have not added it.

Step 2: In a Non Stick Pan Pour the Water and Add the Sugar. Stir in Fire Till Sugar Dissolves.

Step 3: Add the Butter and Mix.

Step 4: Now Add the Sweetened Condensed Milk and Stir.

Step 5: Keep Stirring. When It Starts to Boil, Stir in Low Fire.

If you want to add cadju , add it at the end of this step .

Step 6: Stir Till Mixture Gets Thick and Comes Off the Pan.

Step 7: Grease Your Dish Well.

It would be easier if you line your dish with oil paper.

Step 8: Spread the Mixture in Your Dish.

Step 9: While It's Still Warm Cut Into Squares or Diamond Shape. Once Its Cool It Would Be Very Difficult to Cut.

Step 10: Enjoy Your Delicious Kiri Toffee :-)

Here it is all cooled and hard. This is where I regretted not using an
oil paper for the bottom. Still with a bit of elbow grease I was able to get the squares off.

Yum! Super delicious! Please try it and let me know how you like it!

I will try and post some popular Sri lankan deserts such as ' Wattalapam' (sounds funny??) and Pol Toffee (coconut toffee) for your delight!

    I made this and it was great. I used an electric hand mixer to stir it and it was a lot quicker

    This is very similar to if not the same as Scottish Tablet which does not last 24hrs in my house

    Hope some of these links help you,These are a few recipes online if you want to try it out .

    Your list of ingredients do not include butter. How much butter do you mix with the sugar and water?

    well I have never tried it like that...perhaps sugar level will be very low?

    This seems a lot like fudge to me. Will try making it to see if kiri toffee is just another name for fudge.

    1 reply's not chocolate tasting and it's not soft. More like hard and crumbly :-) try it and let me know how it is :-)
