  1. Line a standard cookie sheet with a nonstick or silicone mat.
  2. Combine the sugar, glucose syrup and 7 ounces water in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat, brushing down the sides of the pan, until a candy thermometer inserted in the mixture registers 311 degrees F. Add the molasses and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture registers 293 degrees F.

Pour the mixture onto the prepared cookie sheet (it should be approximately 1/4 inch thick); allow to cool. When cooled completely, break into irregular pieces of desired size.
  4. Cut the chile mango with kitchen shears into pieces 1 inch long and 1/8 inch wide.
  5. In a stainless steel mixing bowl, melt the milk chocolate slowly over warm water in a saucepan. Hand-dip all edges and sides of the toffee in the milk chocolate .Before the chocolate sets, top with a piece of the chile mango.
