  How do I keep my butter from separating when I am making English toffee? The butter fat keeps rising to the top.

  Toffee sometimes separates during cooking, leaving a layer of oil on the surface and a thicker mixture underneath. To fix it, add about 1/2 cup of hot water and stir it well. You may need to add a bit more hot water, but this will save the batch of toffee.
