4 Ingredient Toffee Crunch Recipe

As we approach the holidays we’re all looking for that one special gift. Be it a friend, a co-worker, a teacher or even a neighbor, no one can refuse buttery Toffee Crunch candy, generously layered with Dark Chocolate and Sprinkled with Almonds. Nicely stacked in a bag, and adorned with a ribbon your toffee just might be the most delicious gift they get this Holiday Season!

I remember during our dating days, my husband and I would often go to the mall. Our tradition was to stop by popular chocolate candy shop and grab a chocolate or two, followed by a run to the coffee shop and enjoy them together. One of the chocolates was always their Toffee-ette cups (2 toffee bites).

Now we have kids and don’t go out as much, so I couldn’t help but remember about our dating tradition as I was making my own Toffee Crunch bites.
This Toffee Crunch is probably the easiest candy that one could make with no special equipment (other than, may be the thermometer). Read on, and you be the judge!
