Bonfire toffee , or treacle toffee as it is more commonly known, is a very hard, very brittle toffee that is associated with Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night in the United Kingdom. Treacle toffee was common in sweet shops, but now it is only usually available in supermarkets in October and November. Most commonly it is found as pre-made lollies that are set in small foil pie dishes. It can also be bought in slabs, which are cracked into smaller pieces with a hammer.
Bonfire toffee tastes very strongly of black treacle, and cheap versions can be quite bitter in taste unlike most toffee.
Its ingredients are generally:
Margarine or butter
Food colourings, usually dark brown or blackSource(s): Visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonfire_toffee to see a picture of bonfire toffee, and for more info.

Treacle toffee -
How does treacle toffee differ from ordinary toffee?
The key ingredient is black treacle or molasses, the thick syrup that is a by-product of turning sugar cane or beet into sugar. Beyond that, each sweet maker has a different recipe.
