Why I Love Disneyland’s Churro Toffee

Every single time I go to Disneyland I get a piece of Churro Toffee. It’s a tradition. The first time I tried it, I knew Disneyland’s Churro Toffee was the best toffee ever because it’s a delicious combination of two of my favorite treats – churros and toffee.

The buttery, sugary, and vanilla flavor is absolutely amazing, and the melted white chocolate on top makes it even better. And the best part is that it’s topped with cinnamon sugar, which gives it a delicious cinnamon flavor.

What Is Toffee?

If you aren’t familiar with toffee, it’s a confection made from butter and sugar that is boiled until it becomes a hard, brittle candy. It can also be made with nuts, such as almonds or cashews, added in for flavor and texture.

It’s important to use high-quality ingredients when making toffee because it can easily burn.

Toffee vs. Caramel

Toffee and caramel are often confused, but they are actually quite different. Caramel is often made with brown sugar, while toffee is made with white sugar. Caramel also has cream added in, giving it a creamy texture. Toffee is hardened and brittle.

But both toffee and caramel can be used in a variety of desserts, such as topping ice cream or added to cookies.

What Is Homemade English Toffee Made Of?

Ingredients to make Disneyland's Churro Toffee.

Churro Toffee Ingredients

Butter: You will need 4 sticks or 2 cups of butter. I like to use salted butter because I like the flavor, but unsalted butter can be used as well. If using unsalted butter, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the toffee after removing from the heat.

Sugar: Two cups of white sugar is needed for this recipe. I prefer to use cane sugar, but any white granulated sugar will work.

White Chocolate: Four cups of white chocolate chips or chopped white chocolate is needed for the topping. I like to use 2 bags of Ghirardelli Melting Wafers because they melt smoothly and have great flavor. You can also use milk chocolate chips if preferred.

Vanilla Extract: Two teaspoons of vanilla extract adds a delicious flavor to the toffee.

Cinnamon Sugar: One tablespoon of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of sugar are needed for sprinkling over the white chocolate on top of the toffee. You can also use store-bought cinnamon sugar if desired.

Christmas Sprinkles (Optional): For a festive holiday treat, add some Christmas sprinkles to the top of the toffee!
