Free Narnia Recipe Only At Narnia.com


December 20, 2013

"Eating and reading are two pleasures that combine admirably,"

into the wilds of Narnia than a bag of toffee. Make your own toffee

with this free recipe from THE OFFICIAL NARNIA COOKBOOK,

a delicious way to expand your journey into Narnia with over

Toffee has been a favorite candy of English schoolchildren for longer

than anyone can remember. There are lots of different kinds, but the

toffee Digory planted in Narnia and which grew into a toffee tree is

the sort you can still buy today all over England. When you find

yourself on a journey through the wilds of Narnia and you don’t

have any food, a bag of good toffee will keep you going for a long time.

You might even find a toffee tree.


“Wake up, Digory, wake up, Fledge,” came the voice of Polly
“It has turned into a toffee tree.”

—THE MAGICIAN’S NEPHEW
