Heathen Toffee with Almonds!
I’ve been looking forward to making this chocolate for years. Toffee! Now we make it like every other day or something ridiculous like that. I guess that’s what life is: you look forward to something for years (having kids, getting married, adopting a dog—these are the things maybe non-confectioners think about? Who knows!) then you do it all the time and don’t really think about it again. Except when it’s time to write words about it. But actually, I think about our Heathen Toffee all the time, because quality control is of paramount importance with toffee (crunch!) so I eat a lot of tiny scraps of it and doing so has certainly improved the quality of my own life, so.
So, we make our toffee from scratch: a slowly-cooking syrup, a closely-monitored temperature. Toasted almonds stirred in at just the right temperature, then we carefully pour it out, let it cool, crack it into bite-sized pieces and send them on a ride through our enrobing machine which gives them a thin shell of dark chocolate to seal in crispiness and add another layer of flavor. More toasted almonds are added as a garnish while the chocolate is still warm, and there you go.
This lil confection took me an entire day and *nine batches* of sugary stuff to perfect–visit the photo album on our Facebook page to see the entire saga unfold.
Most of our chocolates are best kept at room temperature, but toffee is best kept in a sealed container in the fridge so it keeps its crunchiness. Crunchiness is all when it comes to toffee, and keeping crunchiness is always the challenge with toffee. Let it warm up a bit before eating so you don’t chip a tooth!
All our products are made fresh with no preservatives. Eat within one month for optimal flavor.
