Too many recipes don't give brand names, they just say 'soft toffee' or 'caramels' and you're meant to know what they translate to! I can find lots of recipes to make the things, but I just want to be able to buy them...

So, I know fudge, that's easy, just enough to give my kids a treat! And proper toffee too, that's the stuff Thornton's sell that my DH loves.

However, what are caramels and soft toffee? I think of caramel of being soft like in a millionaire's shortbread, but then Werther's say they're caramels and they're hard! And is soft toffee not just fudge or caramel??

Please help! This is the recipe I fancy, in case you wonder..

Werthers does soft chewy toffees too

Like in a cadbury's chocolate eclair?

I think it depends where the recipe is from as well. In the US caramels are individually wrapped sweets, I think they're a kind of chewy toffee but not sure confused

Yes I would think the toffees in that recipe are chewy toffee sweets. Maybe dairy toffees you get in a bag in the sweets section
