Candy making is an art, if you’ve ever watched classic candy made from scratch and by hand, it’s amazing. I love candy for those reasons, there is just something impressive about it! I still haven’t mastered it and I might never but, luckily for us Chet Enstrom did! Working in an ice cream factory by day and learning to make candy at night he perfected handcrafting sweet treats. He made the candy for friends and for gifts (what we all do who love to bake) and then started selling it. Within five years of deciding to start his business he was shipping toffee worldwide, amazing! Eventually the business was sold to another family member and today it is still a family affair in Grand Junction, Colorado. I’m hoping that when Chris and I visit his family in Denver I can visit one of the stores and watch how this candy is made. I could watch candy get made all day, I love it that much.
We were sent a one pound box of Enstrom’s Milk Chocolate Almond Toffee for review, this retails for $19.95 and comes in a box that is 7-1/2″ x 5″ x 1-1/2″. This will serve about 10 people or for the three of us it will last forever since we eat candy slowly. For my friend who need or want sugar free…they carry it! You can buy up to a 5 pound box of this toffee!
I love when you can look at a label and recognize all of the ingredients on it, that’s how it should be! This candy is made from; almonds, butter, sugar,milk chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, milk, chocolate liquor, soy lecithin, vanilla) and salt.
I love the chocolate coating on the outside of the toffee, it’s a nice creamy chocolate that leaves you wanting more! The toffee itself is buttery and delicious, reminding me of Grandparents for some reason. You get the crunch that you expect and the nuttiness and all around goodness. You can taste the love that goes into crafting these treats. I could do without the coating of almond bits on the outside but it does make it look very pretty. To keep your candy fresh and flavorful you can store it in the fridge or freezer, we are big on candy freezing around here! Am I alone? I feel like frozen tastes better and lasts longer.
