    To make salted toffee, line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Cook sugar and salt in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring, for 3-5 minutes or until the sugar dissolves and caramelises. Pour onto the prepared tray. Set aside for 10 minutes to set. Use a large sharp knife to coarsely chop the toffee.
