Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bonfire toffee is a hard, brittle toffee associated with Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night in the United Kingdom. The toffee tastes very strongly of molasses, and cheap versions can be quite bitter. In Scotland, the treat is known as claggum, with less sweet versions known as clack. In Wales, the treat is known as loshin du. The flavor is similar to that of butterscotch, although it is a toffee and never a viscous liquid. The use of molasses in the United Kingdom began in the 1660s, when it was first used to make gingerbread. Bonfire toffee emerged soon thereafter. But treacle was considered medicinal at the time and therefore very expensive, limiting the spread of toffee as a dessert or snack food
