Uncle Billy's Toffee

I've just had a go at making toffee from Delia's Complete Cookery Course. However try as I might it never reached the correct temperature 250F but hung out around 220F. I boiled it for 20 minutes more than the recipe said. I'm still waiting to see how it turns out. But what went wrong?

Uncle Billy's Toffee

I have never yet used a sugar thermometer for making toffee, so I have no idea in real terms how hot mine gets. I use the old fashioned 'drop it in iced water & see if it sets' thing. Did you try that & did it set? If so, the temp matters less, but who knows?? Hope it is ok though!

Thank you!

I'll give that a go.
