Toffee Drops

I made these toffee drops to serve with cheesecakes. I boiled my first batch of sugar and water for too long that my toffees burnt and tasted bitter. I was more careful with my second batch. Happy with the result but there is definitely more room improvement.

1. Stir sugar and water in a medium, heavy-based saucepan until sugar dissolves. Heat mixture over medium heat and bring to boil. Continue to boil, without stirring, until golden. Remove from heat. Drizzle tablespoons of toffee, length ways, onto tray and allow to set. Use as required.
