Let’s make toffee! A rich sweet chocolate toffee brittle, made with brown sugar, butter, and American Heritage Chocolate!
Toffee comes in numerous varieties and there are many, many recipes. No one knows for sure when we started enjoying this caramelized sugar treat, but toffee was first mention the Oxford English Dictionary in 1825.
Toffee (“a sweet meat made from sugar or treacle, butter, and sometimes a little flour, boiled together; often mixed with bruised nuts such as almond or walnut toffee”)
Our toffee recipe is bursting with chocolate plus a little extra crunch.
