4. To test if the treacle is done place cold water into a sandwich tin or bowl and drop some treacle into the water, if you can push the treacle together to form a shape and it goes hard it is done and remove from heat. If not continue to heat and repeat the water process. It should ‘clink’ or snap/break when done. (The more it is boiled the harder it gets).
5. Leave to cool slightly then transfer to a greased sandwich tin to harden.
